I really love maps. I think they’re such an engaging way of conveying information. I occasionally do illustrated maps, though I’m by no means a virtuoso mapmaker. I’m currently working on one for National Geographic Adventure magazine and stumbled upon this amazing site called Strange Maps, which catalogues maps of all different kinds including:

The Illustrated

The Satirical (“How Japan Sees America” map)

and The Fantastic (“The Land of Oz”… shaped like Kansas)

Below are a few of my illustrated maps.
