This image goes with posting above in Interesting Links.
This an example showing the details of the last all hand-drawn map ( including lettering) which I did in 1998. It was an insane amount of work!
I notice that we can only post images in map Gallery. I hope this jpg will show up Ok.

Quite humbling! An insane amount work you say? I dare ask!
Never had the pleasure of visiting Montreal, but I imagine Montrealians would greatly appreciate this piece.

Have you done other cities?

Very nice! I was wondering what the transition to computers was like? I was always interested in being an "artsy" type, but all my cartoon characters always came out "weird". Needless to say, since PS and Illy came about, that has really been a boon to my attempts at artistry - even though I'm still mediocre.

What type of maps do you refer to these as? I seem to recall a lenghty thread covering this type of map.

Jean-Louis,

I'm guessing that like many other cartotalk members, I really don't even know what to say about your maps... except for... "Fantastic!...how does he do it?".

Thank you for the compliment Erin. I appreciate it because I very rarely get to exchange with peers in the mapping business .I,ve done many other places in various styles. Now that I,m getting the hang of these lo-res jpg images , Here is one of a map of the Great lake with a focus bubble for detail. This was also mostly done by hand. The landscape was all hand-painted watercolor but the details like ships & buildings were enhances in photoshop.
