Strange, sometimes, how ideas find their time. For four years I’ve had this drawing sat on my hard drive. It’s the beginnings of an idea I dropped, but never really lost the love for. I’ve occasionally looked at, wondered how I could improve it, fill it out, but then I’d put it back in its folder and go back to doing something else.
There’s an even older (and crapper) world map drawing on my hard drive, from February 2000, sitting alone in a folder called Mini People of the World. That was gonna be people from every country in their national dress.
Now, after Mexipops and your response to the idea of doing Minipops from various nations (thanks for the suggestions), it seems that, adding in my Wikipedia and CIA World Factbook obsessions, the time is right to do something that ties all these things together. The ideas I have for each of these things do kinda mesh together nicely, it’s just a matter of planning and execution now.
