      Thanks, Jon! Drawing maps perhaps isn’t the most thrilling task, so it’s great if you can turn out a really good piece of work in less time. Don’t forget that I’m always listening out for pic suggestions in all of the desktop and mobile design apps, so feel free to make suggestions @tonyharmer on Twitter. 🙂
