    I started out in Inkscape, which is what I usually use, but found myself working more and more in a style better suited to raster, so I Moved everything to GIMP.

    The ocean currents are back -- but in a very rough state.

    Feedback / Critiques welcome

    (Edited to add: and yeah, the trade routes are going to need editing in light of the ocean currents.)
