Various "old" maps, created in Photoshop or Illustrator, based on modern maps, inspired by old maps.

I love making "old" maps. The first two maps (The Balkans from 150 AD and The Levantine Sea from XIXth century) are from my Balkan cookbook series. Then comes a map from a multimedia presentation about the history of the City of Toruń, Poland. ( germ. Thorn, lat. Thorunia, Torunium).
The last one, a very big map of Asia is from a Italian advertisment showing the area of travels of Marco Polo.
All trees, mountains, cities and other details are created in Photoshop or Illustrator. A lot of classic pencil hand made work also.
These maps are created today, no old material used, everything is hand drawn or Illustrator work. (except paper background - scans.) Based on contemporary maps and inspired by various old maps, but they are not copied from any particular old map.
