Stay tuned for upcoming maps from my collection, including full size World Stereotypes Map and Map of the Internet!


Political map of the world in winter 2013.
Complete poster includes one major and detailed political map of the present world, showing most of the important cities, sea currents, important mountain peaks, islands, and much more. It also includes hand-painted(using photoshop, various minor relief base renders, brushes, and then stamping) relief map, giving unique feeling to the mood of the map. Not counting one major map, there are 18 more maps included in the poster - large and detailed maps of earth´s polar regions, northern&southern polar night sky, flags of all sovereign nations and 14 minimaps, showing all from world's climate and tectonic plates to language groups or largest cities.
Framing of the map was done from my own photos taken in art gallery.
On the corners, there are panels showing brief timeline of the human history, largest countries and dependencies by population, largest countries by area, and 75 world's largest cities.

While certainly one of the most detailed and beautiful maps I've ever seen (what I'd give to know how to make maps like this...), I feel there are a few problems with the religious map section. In particular, most of Africa's interior is marked, for some reason, as "Animist". While I'm not sure about the rest, Uganda, at least, is more than 85% Christian, yet is marked as animist on your map. I know, a relatively small detail on quite a large map, but for a map so incredibly detailed, I found it a very odd mistake.

This map is awesome! Lots of information, and it has that 19th century imperialistic theme. Great!

I love this and want it for my (to be built) study, will check it out on Zazzle.
My only reservation is the dark relief shading for highland areas; I'm not sure it fits 100% or works as intended. Within such a gloriously detailed work, to my eye it problematically darkens some areas (especially Tibet) without conveying the fine-grained information you'd expect from a feature of the map that's so obvious... (also, if it's doing topographical/informational work then shouldn't the Urals, NZ alps and Antarctic ranges also be given the same treatment?). I get that it's part of the handmade/staining/aging effects (which turn this into something unique and wonderful), but I kinda wish the relief-darkening 'layer' was toned down by about 30-50%... (same with the red smudge near the 'A' in Indian Ocean). I imagine I'll get used to it though :)
Full kudos for the conception and execution. What an astounding piece of work!

That is one hell of a map. Puts The-Necromancer's world map hanging on His wall to shame.

I would shout expletives on the rooftops and not approach how awesome this is.  Time to rearrange the Christmas wish list... astounding.
