draw first: Stanley Islands, 1/14/09

As I noted on the Flickr page, I have made two "mistakes" with naming the E streets. The first one was that I accidentally duplicated a street name (with a slight variation). But seeing as how the streets are Existence and Existential, I think it's kind of a funny error. I almost added Exist and Existing, but decided against it.

The second, more obvious, blunder was that I have two different street types for the same named street. On the longer streets, like the ones that define the borders of the letters, I often repeat the street name, just like it's done on an atlas. However, this time, I accidentally turned a Parkway into a Boulevard. Again, the name of the street itself is ironic: Equality.
