    Post My hand-drawn home town

    This is a photo of a map I drew in 1987, when I was 16.
    The original map is about 50x56 cm.
    I simply used pens and pencils.

    Unfortunately I couldn't scan the original map, so I took a photo, rotated, cut, added some color, and adjusted shadows.
    I hope the result is good enough!

    Well the photo quality is probably less good than a scan but it's still a very nice map! Have some rep

    Great job on this. Nice to see a city map done in traditional media.

    Cheers,

    Thank you everybody!

    @ Jared (TheRedEpic): My home-town is placed in Tuscany. Try to look for it on Google Maps: its name is Poggibonsi.
