Hello, I am new to this forum and thought I would share a map I made.

This is a map I finished recently of the Bahamas and Caribbean Sea.
I hand drew and painted this map onto some specially prepared paper I made to look antiqued. I wanted it to look hand drawn and old. It was used as a prop in a theater production.
Hope you like :)

Thank you all for your encouraging comments, I work alot with pen and wash and will post more of my work here, and as ive said I'm not after technical accurcy, these maps are more for decorative purposes, plus I have always had a fascination with old hand drawn maps.

Fantastic prop! It looks very nice, and I imagine the colors would really show up nicely on stage.
