Artistic reproduction of the original map from 1981. I practically fully redid it; redefined the borders of the countries of the old Soviet Union and adequation per the disintegration of the Yugoslavia; renamed geographic accidents erstwhile in English language according to the local languages (ex.: from Island to Ostrov on the Russian region); included multiple interested locations and it is constantly updated according to the world political changes, where the last one as an example the creation of the new country South Sudan.
This map unchained all the other maps; I took about seven year to conclude it, working on weekends and holidays, just as a hobby, a challenge, a “distraction”. At the end, it came the internet to support me, the digitalization allowed to print reproductions of my original maps and commercialize them, becoming today my profession.
