Kilpailun tehtävänanto

===The Contest===
I am writing a fantasy book series called "The Rift." Check it out: [login to view URL]

Like any good fantasy series, I need a map.

My series takes place in San Luis Obispo, California. But I want a map that looks fantasy-like. There's a certain bit of humor to this: an old-looking map of a modern city.

The map will appear in black-and-white print editions of the book, as well as digital eBook editions and my website.

I have made a sample map using Gimp. However, this is just shapes and labels. What I really need is a beautifully designed version. Please use my map as a base, but make hills into actual hills, buildings into buildings, houses into houses, whatever.

You can also look at the Google Map I used to generate this. PLEASE take a look at this: [login to view URL]

    Is this Nordic Mithology? Or a mix of everything? I don't wanna spoillers, sorry if I'm getting boring.

      It's really a mythology of my own making. But a Nordic-looking map would work fine.

    Everyone,

    It's OK to do what Justinjob did on #2 and post a partially-completed map, such that I can give feedback. You can definitely save yourself some time like that.
