    Anything you like, so long as it is a physical product, I say. Make a globe, if you like!

    SOunds Cool. I know I entered one of the contests a while back with an entire Hand Drawn Map.

    I'm up for something tangible. All these electrons are probably giving me a negative charge or something.

    Now, where's that blue racketball I was saving to make a globe......

    By the way, for those who insist they think best on-screen -- it should be ok to do your mock-ups, composition, and layout digitally; the final product is all that has to be physical. Did that once for a sort of logo contest at work, where they insisted they be hand-drawn. I'd have never gotten the text spacing right doing colored pencils from scratch. Though for the spirit of this one, I would figure all transferral to paper has to be by hand and eye - no printer output :-).

    I like the ideia. As I usually draw the map on a paper (the general land and mountains) and I finish it on the computer, it could be interesting to see what I can do.

    Yes!

    Like the idea. Might be good for a Lite challenge, too.

    what is this pencil you talk about?

    *lol*... I think its a great idea, especially like the diorama idea, been years since I've made one of those ... but I'd probably go for pencil - but it could be cool to have a dioramas only challenge at one time - and what about using only common household items *lol* ... we have thought about it as a challenge at some point but been afraid that people would be intimidated by the really good hand-drawing-artist we have in here - but of course its all about pushing ones limits and expanding on ones skills, and a totally analogue map would be a cool way to do that

    Every aspect of it would be hand drawn then? Labels and all? I'm in. I just hope it happens when I've got some time and not when I'm slammed with work.

    I am totally in, since (at least for now) hand drawn maps is the only thing I can do

    This would be very interesting -and old-school-, totally great.
