Prints available later in 2021 - map gallery below!
Commenced in 2020, this is a map of the world. Rather than the endless skylines and cultural features of North America: Portrait of a Continent, I wanted the wild character of Earth to shine.
While you won't find cities or borders on this map, you will find geographic labels. This is important. From mountain ranges to deserts, rivers to rainforests, the labels here offer a detailed outline of Earth's natural geography.
Animals are incredible at evoking a feeling of place, and there are hundreds across the map already. Paired with the labels, this allows the map to be a powerful resource for learning Earth's basic geography. While, I hope, drawing attention to the beauty and fragility of the natural world.
The map is in the Natural Earth projection, centered on 11°E rather than Greenwich.
As of June 2021, all of the Americas, Europe and Africa have been completed. Asia is currently underway. I expect the map finished later this year, and both posters and limited edition fine art prints will be available.
