Here is my contribution to the map projection trading card collection, headed by Daniel Huffman. My projection was Equidistant conic, and I decided to accentuate the "cone" of the conic with some shadow rendering that is typically not included in these types of projection graphics. The video at the bottom illustrates the before-and-after. All the shadows were added with Adobe Illustrator. Someday I hope to put out a little tutorial for adding these kinds of shadows in Illustrator. Slightly tedious, but so fun and delicious.
