Map of Adastra

This is the oddest piece in my collection. It is a map, drawn in ink, colored by markers, then 'aged' with a wet teabag and even burned a bit on the edges (the center bottom is the best example). You may wonder why this map is even here. In highschool, I did a number of comics that parodied something using my classmates. One such work was Onions'n'Dragons, which has an obvious heritage. This is the map from it. I added this map to the gallery for fun. Nearly every name on this map is borrowed from another source. Some are names of friends, modified for this purpose, but the good chunk are place names from movies, books, and computer RPGs. I figured a few people might get a kick pinpointing what name belonged with what. This temporary piece also demonstrated the effectiveness of the teabag process for aging/burning (although I highly recommend caution while burning edges...even though wet from your 'aging', paper is highly flammable). 1991 Pencil and ink, markers and tea staining
