It's been too long. Side projects have veered me away from cartography and it's time I injected some love back into Royale Maps.
Don't get me wrong, I am grateful for the opportunities I have been given to work on a piece of Manx cultural heritage which will long outlast me (not allowed to show you just yet), but I need to drift back into my pet project where I have the freedom to create without expectations.
As I've not contributed to Royale Maps much in the last few months, I have decided to come back with ambition and work on the Map of California, the Golden State.
California is the most visited state in the US, it is the third-largest in area, and boasts a high diversity of ecosystems. With its deserts, oceans, forests and mountain tops, this map is sure to be an exciting one.
Here we go. The challenge to draw the best Map of California is on.
