Time to vote for this month's lite challenge!

The challenge was to map a tiny civilization using an extreme closeup. We have some great, innovative entries!

Please vote for ONE entry. You can view the entries' thumbnails here:

Voted for Cookie Island, for the funny treatment and good find and realisation. Really good map!

Tough Choices!! Cookie Island is clever and funny, 20:12 and Cyber Attack are very creative, and Jaxillon's graphics are just Brilliant, but I really like Fury's Treehouses and gave him the vote. Could have gone either way though, they're all very good entries.

I don't often like to vote when I'm in the contest itself but I really liked the idea Southern had with the leaf.

Reminded me of something I saw in an art festival somewhere - They had used a process to strip a leaf down to it's skeletal structure and then painted that and framed them. They were so cool looking, to this day I wish I had purchased one.

I would have liked to have seen more of the leaf instead of just a region but it's still a great idea for a map.

Not sure how long this will be there but here's the idea:

Any word on the next Challenge?

I was going to ask the same thing. I'm feeling all challengy and stuff, and have been waiting to see if it's something piques my interest.
