Yes I'm so glad you realized it!

I've learnt a little more of U.S. history after doing this design.

You're right, I thought that thirteen colonies were considered in the Union at the same time. I'll send the fixed file

Hey, thanks so much!

This seemed like an appealing concept but it turned out to be pretty challenging.

I drew quite a detailed eagle as a template before thinking about state placement and once I started laying them down it quickly became apparent that it was going to look almost like abstract art up close. Very glad that people can see the eagle at a distance and dig the finished shirt!

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!

A message of solidarity in the face of seemingly irreconcilable partisan differences.

I wasn't happy with the contrast and legibility of the other version. I like this one a lot better.

Nicely done! I really like the font you used, too. Fonts can make or ruin a design...and the one you used is making it great!

I think the concept is a good one - if someone could sort out the pesky details. I'd love to get a final version of this.

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... ;)

Nice map !



Thanks! Don't worry, I had to do some research to get the areas right. I didn't do it all from memory.
