How does this have 60 votes? Are we supposed to believe they didn’t just cut a section from a map photo and add a filter?
woot does not allow the use of photos and such. I assume the artist drew a map and it is just hard to tell because of compression. The thumbs we have to upload are only 186x186.
I am the artist, and I did indeed hand-draw this map — well by hand with a stylus on my iPad in Procreate. Here’s a screen grab of my work in progress.
As for the 60 votes…well, that is an incredible surprise to me. I hoped to get some, but as the only map in the bunch, maybe it’s just unique enough.
I take it as a huge compliment to my work that you think it looks like a photo.
