I love your map! Would it be possible to have you do a map for the Reich Duchy of Beerstein!
Best regards,
Wilhelm von Beerstein

Wow! Nice flags and I am pretty much gobsmacked by the maps! I love the 'period' feel to them.

Absolutely wonderful flags and maps!!! What program did you use for the latter? I'd like to update my own, and "the look" (thank you Mr. Grant) of yours is charming.

Best Regards,

Stokes

Thanks for the comments :-)

How I make the maps:
I draw the maps out on paper first with pencil, "ink" the pencil drawing with an ink pen, scan the result, do a lot of clean-up in Photoshop or Photoshop Eelements, bring the result into Illustrator and Live Trace it, then do more work to color in different parts, then bring the layers from Illustrator back into Photoshop where I do further processing, making some layers transparent, etc.
