Just a few of the more than 500 species of birds to be found in the thrilling Tarangire National Park in Tanzania. This map was a huge challenge because the brightly colored birds sort of pre-empted my color palette. It was fun to try to balance between effective composition and there's-too-much-crap-on-that-map.
This is a very realistic representation of the red planet, including landing locations and schematics of NASA's successful probes. This official map shows global geological formations and scientific features, and more very important and relevant information for those wishing to understand Mars. Not to scale, but still very official and important.
This map highlights a few of my favorite destinations and animals of a recent trip to the Antarctic Peninsula. Stand on a tabular iceberg and be deceived at Deception Island. Can you name the three species of penguin shown? How many different types of whales can you find? These questions and many more can be answered by close inspection of the map of Antarctica!
We kayaked on the Weddell Sea. Fucking amazing.
Unique and bizarre animals inhabit the Galapagos, like the Sally Lightfoot crab and the Red-Footed Booby bird. I enjoyed adding all of the ocean elements in this one, but no room for Darwin. :)
