I used Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to make my map. It took forever but I like the outcome. (NOTE: I created everything myself except for the little inset illustrations in the water. I got those from very old maps.)
I can't help but think of the last few lines from the movie Joe vs. the Volcano when I look at this map:
- "I wonder where we'll end up?"
- "Away from the things of man, my love. Away from the things of man."
