    Very nice. is street labeling absolutely necessary? I ask because this is a wonderful "representative" map something perhaps to show the overall layout of the city as opposed to all the details. Either way it is truly very good.

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Looking good Max. One thing I thought I'd mention: it might be a personal opinion, but I'm not too keen on the district borders going over the water. Where you have a couple of borders meeting over the river on the right-hand side, in particular, looks kinda wrong, I think.
