Who knew that a bunch of maps, and a box full of pins could be this fantastic? Well, American artist Shannon Rankin I suppose. I am in complete awe of her creativity and beautiful attention to detail … and I bet she never, ever gets lost.

Maps are an interesting motif of a journey,however I think they add too much business in a lot of pieces,and so detail has to be cut out of the subject,such as tone and shadowing in this piece shown. It represents a physical journey throughout a place, and provides a detailed canvas,however I do not think I would carry this idea forward to a final piece.
