this is incredibly awesome. I was born in California and lived there for 17 and a half years until I moved to Oregon, so California has always had a special place in my heart. Definitely going to buy this if I am able

I'm super happy you have my hometown, Blythe! We hardly get recognized on anything, lol. However, you have Lake Havasu and Yuma on the "map" but both of those are cities in Arizona, not in California. You also have Brawley listed twice, it is infact located lower than Blythe, physically. Just wanted to let you know if you want to update! :)

Oh, 3 down from Parlier (2 down from Lemoore), you have Parliet. Is Parliet a city? Also, you swapped the 'n' and the 'g' in "Coalinga" (right above Parliet).

All in all, this is an amazing piece of work. It's incredible how many cities you were able to include on this. As a native Californian, this makes me really happy to see. I may just have to bug my husband to get a canvas print of this to hang up in our apartment. :D

Although I do have a question about the prints: On the prints page, some of the image gets cut off. Do you know if the actual prints are of the full image or if the preview is accurate?

Thanks, glad you like it.

I honestly dont know about the prints. Its been sold a bunch of times so if someone who bought it can let me know I'd appreciate it.

This is absolutely awesome! I LOVE IT.
However, I have to ask, why is Ventura on there three times? San Buenaventura is the technical name for the city, but everyone just calls it Ventura. Maybe in place of two of them you could put Camarillo or Hueneme?

I'm sorry, but how come you labeled county names. By labeling counties you left of many cities including Livermore, Pleasanton, Stockton, etc. Also, there's no city called Daly. It's Daly city. This is a big idea, but honestly, the execution is shoddy at best.
