Maps and journeys

There is something fascinating about maps. Maybe it's the promise of freedom, the hope of a voyage or just the taste of nostalgia we associate with traveling. Interesting enough, sometimes the journeys that exist in potential, the journeys a map promises without actually delivering, those are more satisfying than an actual trip. Because there are no limits, no borders and no security checks on our imagination...

These were done in ink, oil pastels and Letraset markers, then scanned and assembled in Photoshop. The zodiacal figures are from Albrecht Dürer's Celestial Map of the Northern Sky.
