I FINALLY found my email on the subject. I have a large Hyborian Age map, black and red on brown burlap, looks nice and old. Hand-painted by a gent named Jack Cook, at email@example.com. Acquired it at Howard Days a few years back, was a bear to frame, as its cut as an odd size. I know he has created at least one more, and perhaps could be persuaded to do others.
Yes, yes, I'll try to get a picture of it up here sometime.
Glad to know my map is in good hands godzilladude! Just to let all know my old e-mail no longer works (It got hacked and stolen) But I now have a homepage decated to my work you can view it at:http://theoldecartographersshoppe.net/
The map you have was made in the same vien as the one I donated to Project Pride and now hangs in the kitchen of Howard's house. I purposely try to adhere to and draw only what Howard wrote about adding some detail as later added by L. Sprague de Camp and Lin Carter, but I purposely stay away from new information as I try to make my work as 'old world' as possible while being as close to their writing and map versions as possible.
I add few embelishments because I am striving to make a map very much in the manner that 'beyond here is the edge of the world' or 'beyond this point there be dragons direr'. To me a good map of the Hyborian world needs to look as if someone has hand drawn it using inks and material more fitting the age and as if it is based on verbal reports, and stories, and older maps not satellite mapping systems or as if it came from triple A along with your membership card.
Any way stop by my shoppe take a look, as visitors are always welcome there.
