Beautiful Portraits Drawn on Maps using Ink and PencilOur thing has always been the fusion of art+science, but we’re really digging artist Ed Fairburn‘s mixed media art consisting of maps, pencil, and ink. Most of Fairburn’s pieces are large in scale, and he uses the complex webs of roads, trains, and rivers on the maps to create unique portraits. He hides these incredibly detailed, and beautiful faces amongst the topography of various regions — including Canada, the US, Germany, and Zambia.

What do you think of Fairburn’s remarkable art? We’d love if you’d share your thoughts with us in the comments!
