ID:	44764These are between 15 and 22 years old. Most were damaged while I was deployed and water leaked all over my storage unit. Most of them took about two to three months each. I was inspired mostly by the Hagstrom Maps and Atlases that were hand drawn up to the late 90's.Click image for larger version.

    Wow, these represent a lot of hours and are very nicely done. Thank you!

    Staggering level of detail, hats off.

    Holy cow indeed ... the amount of work and effort in these is certainly staggering! Is there any narrative or story associated with them?

    Very, very cool stuff. The amount of work that went into those is quite impressive!

    Thank you for all the positive comments. I started to scan my maps on a 11"X17" scanner. Each map is on a 22"X28" poster board so I have to join the scanned images in power point. Some maps take up multiple poster boards so it may take a while to scan all of them.
