Hello cartographic enthusiasts,

 

There is new map on the way...

 

Half a year ago I got an order from big German publishing house to make panorama of British Isles.

The map is still in work. I expect it will be completed towards the end of summer.

 

At that time I will afford you the picture in better resolution :)

 

Best regards,

Bojan

It's nice but the North Arrow in the top right corner is a little bit fun :-)

"Sea" needs to be spelt consistantly:

 

Irish Sea NORTH SEE...

 

Agree about the North arrow, I'd drop it.

 

Lovely work though, and I like the heavenly mists under the title...

Awesome! I'd personally make the sea labels all the same color, it looks like you have some sort of transparency effect on them right now which looks a bit odd.

It looks really nice - very Berannesque!  

 

It instantly reminded me of a Northern European poster of his I have hanging in my office.  I agree that the gradient on the ocean/sea labels is a little over-styled  - making them a solid light blue might work better.  Right now it look like half of the label is sticking out of the water.  

 

Although I like the curved path the Outer Hebrides label is on, you might consider making all the Island labels a consistent style for easier identification.  For a moment, my mind assumed the label was for a body of water.
