Do you like my new map design style? 

11 deviants said Yes totally, continue with that!
No deviants said Nothing special, bro.
No deviants said No, I prefer the old style -

“Today we look for a victory worthy of Hercules himself!”

As part of a project to put together a cartography portfolio, I will be creating and uploading a series of forty-five (45) historical maps over the next few months. The objective is to journey through history from the empire of Alexander the Great in 323 BC all the way to the European Union in 2014.

The portfolio will mainly focus on Europe and address most of the pinnacles of European history, including Alexander the Great, Rome, Byzantium, Charlemagne, the Crusades, the colonial empires, the French Revolution,  the Napoleonic era, the World Wars, the Cold War, the European Union and many more. Events, cultures and empires which are somehow strongly connected to Europe will also be covered, including Islam, the Mongol invasions, the Ottoman empire and the United States of America.

An overview of the portfolio has been posted on the main page of my deviantART. As you will notice, most of the map titles are hidden – a new title will be revealed every time a map is finished and uploaded, so you can keep up to date on what map I am working on.

I will most likely also unlock prints for the maps in the portfolio, so that anyone interested or drunk enough can buy a physical copy of a map to study or put on his/her refrigerator.

That’s all, folks!

A complete failure and a terrible disappointment to my parents.

Your maps are magnificent! I literally spent the past few hours poring over them and reading the Latin translations of the Roman authors. Please keep it up. I'm enjoying the Iberian reconquest and I look forward to the new ones of splitting them both in Portugal and Spain. Also the Crusades would be amazing. Jeez. Sorry. I'm babbling! Keep it up, you magnificent bastard. ;)

Hello the names Jay sorry to jump in so rudely but I have to ask you something why did you block :icondisneylover100: ? Did she do something wrong? She had her account deactivated when you blocked her and she's confused and wanting to know why you blocked her.

thank you os much for your maps.. I learn a lot from them.. They are very useful.. I hope you continue to do it…. as maps are evolving and past maps are interpreted again and again in the light of new information. I am really interested in the very ancient maps, that is, 5000 years older…10,000 years older… etc.. any idea where I can find them..
