I started making maps about 2 and half years ago, and it has quickly become my free-time hobby. Until March 2013, I was working only on minor projects, often making commisioned fantasy map drawings as a side work.
In April, I started to work on my first major project – massive scale political map of the world, which is also on deviantart. In December, I started to work on other two projects, Map of the Internet and Map of the Stereotypes.
I was originally inspired by map of the internet created by xkcd, showing most popular social networks as countries and regions, back in 2010. It was not my original idea, but I extended it to such a scale for the first time. I used photoshop for the majority of drawing.
