MAPS WITH MEANING

My "Maps with Meaning" Series all started with a commission of Edgar Allen Poe. All of a sudden drawing on a blank canvas or a sheet of paper was just , well, boring. So I started drawing on maps of all kinds. Whether it be vintage ones that have been folded up, reproductions of old maps or brand new ones they all help tell the story of the illustration that is on them.
