very nice Rob, I dabble a little in those things too as I have a small company that makes invitations for people (mostly weddings)
I have tried to make those corner dealies before but they always end up looking lame. Unlike yours which looks great. I must try da tutorial.
Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to work I go..
I do weddings since those are the people willing to pay for design of invitations ... I'll throw in some flurishes some day
If I tried something like that it would look like it was being overtaken by weeds!

sometimes that's the effect you're after
My finished maps
"...sometimes the most efficient way to make something look drawn by hand is to simply draw it by hand..."
The closest I get to this is making swashes for glass windows, very Edwardian era and Victorian era looking things and not nearly modern enough. Something in my brain prevents me from making these things so a tut would be greatly appreciated.
If the radiance of a thousand suns was to burst at once into the sky, that would be like the splendor of the Mighty One...I am become Death, the Shatterer of worlds.
-J. Robert Oppenheimer (father of the atom bomb) alluding to The Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 11, Verse 32)
