    Hi Moon

    Well, there's no single answer to that. Really a bunch of influences and experiences that underpin that love. When I was a boy my grandfather was a subscriber to National Geographic Magazine. I remember pouring over those wonderful maps for hours. I always have loved history and of course the maps that go with it. I have always been a keen reader of SF and fantasy fiction and the expressions of those magical worlds through their maps. When books didn't have maps I drew them myself. Later I designed adventure games for computers and always started by mapping the world. I've posted a few times on maps and map related things.You've seen some of them but maybe not some of the older ones. http://erraticmusings.typepad.com/blog/2004/11/maps_of_the_hea.html
