Maps That Represent Animals and Nature

Jeppe Ringsted (DAU-DAW)


Just like an actual map every mountain, every lake, every city and every ocean have all been named. But instead of geographical locations and places, they have all been named after everything relating to each animal depicted, from different subspecies to fictional characters from religion, literature, movies. This gives illustrations the same effect as a real map in the sense that you can enjoy them from a distance or you can walk up close and appreciate all the little details.
