  1. a place name.
  2. a name derived from the name of a place.

The haiku for this piece is a reference to the wonderful book by Elle Luna, The Crossroads of Should and Must. I generally don’t draw (I have a sketchy, many-line style. I prefer clean linework, so I’m not a fan of my own inherent style). However, it’s nice to get absorbed in the details of tiny drawings occasionally, so this one was fun.
