Artist Ed Fairburn does awesome things with maps.

The top two images are from his North America Series. They’re pencil drawings on climate charts of North America.

“The angled perspectives have been plotted to compliment the sweeping shape of North America,” he states, “the variations between the colors of Part I and Part II were a conscious decision; the warmer colors reflect a passionate pose while the colder blues suggest a more sombre mood.”

The second and third pieces were created in collaboration with Bobbie-Jo, Ed Fairburn’s partner and printmaker. The second is part of the Western Front Cutout Series and the third is entitled Stafford Lane. Both are ink drawings on old military maps that were then cut and layered over the more colourful North American climate charts.
