Well, these things have been fascinating to look at, but I didn't think I'd get a chance to try - now that one of my publishers have requested us to have a go (you should check out Sonia Leong's as well!), I'm really glad I did!
It's amazing how you can look at friends' maps and totally see how they came to their style - and I think I can see a lot of that in mine as well! Very surreal. I wish I could have sourced a full page for Keiko Nishi - she really was a huge inspiration, but i don't want to bend my book to scan it! Precioussss. ^_^
Also, I'm kicking myself for not adding an Amy Reeder pic in as she totally inpired my inking!
