    If you're looking for the intersection between traditional art and cartography you'll undoubtedly find it in Lingon's maps. All throughout his maps these last months, this watercolors painter has shown his mastery of this medium. One of his latest maps, Renaissance City, features subtle colors and tones that are simple, elegant, clear and harmonious. This watercolor piece has a solid, realistic layout. Surely this city map a shining jewel in Lingon's maps collection."

    Thanks Llannagh! I'm not sure I am very skilled, I'm only using very basic techniques, and maps are really the only things I can use watercolors for… but anyway, I'm happy to hear it

    This is amazing and reminds me of one of the signatures here, saying something like:

    If you want something to look as if drawn by hand, maybe you should just draw it by hand.

    The appearance on the front page is very verll deserved indeed!
