I love that you included Bok Tower. It's a wonderful spot.

Edit - Or is that Disney?

This is so Oakenspirit. I wonder if they will offer poster of it when you win. Good luck.

Funny you should ask- I originally had the Bok Tower, since I wanted a two towers vibe, but didn't know if it was iconic enough- I then changed it to the Kennedy Space Center but it seemed out of place to have a space ship on a fantasy map and missed having a second tower - so tried to TOWER UP the space shuttle-

Do you think I should I make it more obviously a shuttle with rockets for the print-ready?

This is fantastic! Great job converting the landmarks into fantasy and keeping it recognizable! I got the space center reference in FL right away.

Awesome design! I really like all the texture, and your fantasy names for the landmarks.

This is such a cool idea and such fun to look at. I wish there were even more things on the map. Great job with the colors and style.

Thanks so much everyone- I am overwhelmed by all of your kind words- I am so happy you like this idea so much!

Here is the proper soundtrack to listen to while viewing this map- ;)

I hear ya man- I originally had a bunch of additional landmarks- Niagara Falls (The Edge of the World), The Vegas Pyramid (the Sky Ramp), The Washington Monument (The Monolith), AREA 51!!! - but trimmed it because it was too crowded/small... I kept the most iconic (that weren't bunched up) and made them larger-

Mayhaps I'll make a more detailed/expansive poster-edition later on- hehe

Thanks again guys!

YES, PLEASE

I must admit that I didn't get Cape Canaveral at all. (I wondered what was "cosmic" about the Tallahassee capitol tower, and why you didn't call it, I dunno, Wang of the Colossus or something.) There's just something phallic about Florida.

I grew up in Florida and didn't know about Bok Tower or get Kennedy Space Center. I grew up in Tallahassee and to me it looked like the new Capital Building with the Old Capital Building in front of it.

Slightly altered the Cosmic Tower for the print ready- hopefully now it is slightly more recognizable but still TOWER-LIKE... ;)

Great idea, and I especially like The Old King's Throne.

Did you consider something like "The Lizard Swamp" for Florida?
