Strange Maps

Speaking of cartography, I love this blog of strange maps, covering everything from "Titan's Unnamed Methane Sea," to "Area Codes in which Ludacris Claims to Have Hoes" (which literally made me whoop out loud in the middle of my office), to a Surrealist Map of the world from 1929, to the above map of "Country Music's Favorite States." They're funny and beautiful, and each entry has an extended history of the map and its cultural background. An unutterable pleasure to look at and to read.

Drawings I made while in Perú

I took excruciating care on these, as I had limitless time in which to contemplate everything.

Cabbage Print

What to do with the heel of a cabbage, a piece of paper and an inkpad.
