Mapped out

Now that most people are walking around with their own gps devices in their pockets maps have become a bit of a thing of the past, unless you are an artist. More and more creatives out there are beginning to use discarded maps as a medium and the results can be amazing. After seeing this DIY embroidered piece from good ol Martha its got me on the hunt for the perfect map of my own to start creating.
These works from artist Matthew Cusick are simply stunning don't you think? Using a combination of inlaid maps, ink and acrylics, he turns regular panels into one of a kind art pieces with impeccable detailing. Though I love those 3 dimensional roadways, his Geronimo is quite incredible and amazingly recognizable!
