I’ve been sharing these on Instagram and twitter but I thought you all might like to see them here too. Hope you like! I’m super proud of them.

Done London and NYC in this style!

Those are stunning!


#3

Yeah, I saw those on Twitter, they’re beautiful! :grinning:


#4

Sort of like those laser cutter fractals, with human street layout. London is amazing.


#5

Really nice work. Draftboard? Painted?


#6

Beautiful work! Love how you created a layered piece.


#7

Great work, been trying to get some maps going and this confirms how great they can be. Thanks!


#8

The layers are awesome.

The weeding looks like it would be tedious (and easy to lose a street or two).


#9

really like the wave pattern in the river for london.


#10

I love those fractals. I’m actually working on a design that takes a street layout and rotates it a degree every layer to get a similar effect. Will see how it works out!


#11

Thanks. That was a because all I had was draftboard and when I first put it together there wasn’t much contrast. Think it worked well!


#12

It is a pain although I’ve not lost a street yet. I step my cut speed down a notch to really blast away the material. Seems to help alot. 90% of the bits pop out with a couple knocks on the sink


#13

The London one is all draftboard the NYC one is 2 layers draftboard and 2 layers birch plywood to get a little contrast going. No painting just glued.


#14

Unbelievable! These are so sharp!


#15

Beautiful maps love your layered style!


#16

Is that 3 layers I see? 1st is water, second land and 3rd is the map?

I have got to get my stuff together and create something cool.


#17

Yes, saw them on Twitter and am happy to see them again, they are so good!


#18

Those are really fantastic!
