I am really quite content with the result – of course, some things I could have done much better, but as I was told by the recordlabel, there wasn’t time enough to do so.
The CD came out one year later...!!!

I am often asked whether I just took a map of the world and simply painted into this the snake altogether with the flames. Well, actually I really drew the map with great carefulness and preciseness by hand. The labelling I did in parts by hand, in parts with the help of a so-called “scriber”. To make the map look old, I let paint, which I had strongly watered down, drop on it, smeared some other parts, etc..
