It's been awhile but I just finished a very fun and challenging project I'd like to show off. This map of Wisconsin measures 3 feet square, and uses parts of 72 license plates from as early as the 1930s to recreate every county in the state. I really loved the client's feedback via email, copy and pasted here verbatim:

"OMG that is fricken awesome! Thank You!!!!!!"

Hope you all enjoy as well :)
