Artist Ed Fairburn brings every day maps to life using the the chaotic patchwork of roads, trains, and rivers as the framework for his large-scale portraits. He uses meticulous ink or pencil crosshatching to create portraits hidden amongst the topographical features. See more of his work over on his Facebook. (via colossal)

  1. These are amazing, and I can’t believe I’ve come across them today, as this is the very idea I had for the cover of my album “Roads”. My partner kept telling me it wouldn’t work, but now I see these magnificent portraits, I am again inspired. Thanks for sharing :-)
