List It Tuesday - Map Inspiration







































While working on my map series, I discovered a number of artists who use maps in their art, are inspired by map imagery, or both. I've listed a number of my favorites here, and for your convenience, I've included links to their web sites below. Take a minute or two and check out some of the amazing artwork from these artists. You may never look at a map the same way again! And don't forget to head over to artsyville and peruse this week's lists.

Lordy Rodriguez - I couldn't find a direct site, but google image to see his work

PS I will share my map series once all the pieces are finished and mounted.

I love maps, too. I collect a LOT of patterned paper (used to scrapbook, but never stopped buying supplies!) and I truly wish a company would make a pad full of MAPS. Vintage, modern, antique, subway, oceanic- everything MAPS.
