This map is partly based on a real road, Hwy 129, in North Carolina. And this is my first map. I don't own a tablet, if I did, I am sure my trees would look nicer.

I like the font you've used, could you tell us what it is (and where you got it from, if poss).

"tail" is in American Uncial. I have a few publishing programs on my computer ( a Dell) and don't recall when I got this font or it's source. Probably a default font with Microsoft Home Publishing or maybe even Art Explosion, a scrapbook application.

Same for the other for "Tapoco", it is called "Matura MT Script Capitals."

I like your colors, they work nicely enough. I do find it odd that the Great Smokey Mountains don't have any mountains on them while the border between NC and Tenn does. Still, looks fine overall.

I agree about the lopsided landscape. I am getting ready to start a bigger map #2. I also have my eye on a Waco Pen tablet - the Bamboo.

I like the colors too, kinda looks like green and orange sherbet ice cream. Interesting.

The greatest road on the east coast, for a bike rider at least ;)

That map hurts my eyes a bit, so I am working on a new one. Wish I had more time to play but work and family duties call...
