I love this! Definitely could have been the concept art for the 1997 "Batman and Robin" movie.

Hooray! Yes...

I just looked at this again, it's so odd...
I enjoy drawing maps from memory sometimes (I think this is kind of a map of Batman) just to amuse myself, but I don't do it much because it's a bit alarming.

I cannot clearly imagine shapes, proportion, detail and position in space. If I get reference, my visual brain boots up and I can imagine what I see in 3D (not in 2D though, even if it is a photograph) and move it about freely.
All my visual memories (even short term) are of movement and expression - I always imagine the grin without the cat.

Certainly is a good impression of how you think, though. Batman is, essentially, a lot of ninja in a skintight suit with various bat-gadgets and a brooding sort of face. Even in a sort of funny abstract way, the Bat-map definitely shows all of that. And gives him more personality than an attempted 2D replication might be able to convey.
