    I loved this challenge last time and an idea immediately popped into my head, so here we go! This entry isn't eligible to win, it's just here for fun.

    I immediately knew I wanted a crab superimposed over downtown Baltimore. As I was drawing the map (I let Photoshop do the heavy lifting with straight lines), I started thinking about The Wire and so I decided it would be fun to have Stringer Bell write cartography books about Baltimore. This isn't done yet; I actually did a practice merged layer to check on opacity and fill. Still lots to do. (This isn't an eligible entry, just doing it for fun.)

    Glad you liked the reviews, I wasn't sure if I'd just be amusing myself. XD

    Pardon me while I clean up the coffee mess....

    Okay, I got a good chuckle out of those reviews. Nice work.

    Thanks, all, I'm so glad the reviews are a hit outside of the Baltimore/DC area. =D I'm back from a few days away so will get to adding street names soon. (Sorry for the mess, Greason Wolfe!)
