Thank you all for kind words.
Indeed, it takes not so much time - 2-3 hours daily during one week in Illustrator. Presented road atlas is not completed, but you can see 14 of 22 maps on Norscand Road Atlas pages.

absolutely brilliant!

I have also three fictional countries in mind already (because so often drawn on paper), I will draw them with Adobe FreeHand next month

No, it's just a hobby. And I like that it's not for my pleasure only, but other people can enjoy too.

Yes, I was inspired by road maps issued by departments of transportation of different states (Iowa, Illinois, Arkansas etc). It looks more realistic and recognisable.

Norscand, your maps put many actual road atlases to shame. Not only have you included a incredible amount of detail, you've made it very clear and visually attractive as well.

Loads of people have posted brilliant work in this thread. I especially have to single out Norscand, RipleyLV and Realista_KR.

I always enjoyed drawing cities and autobahns and about two years ago I started drawing 3D

Where in the world shall we build an art gallery dedicated to our drawings of maps, freeways, autobahns, cities, 3D's?

Bloody brilliant drawings and maps.
