Here there be robots: A medieval map of Mars by hellofromthemoon
Here there be robots: A medieval map of Mars

You can buy this map here if you like! Heart 
Right now I have posters, sketchbooks, tote bags, pencil pouches, art prints, and even leggings. 

..........................................................................................................................................

I started this project because I really love old maps made by medieval explorers. I thought it would be fun to use their historical design style to illustrate our current adventures into unexplored territory. 

To add a little something extra, I included the history of each place name on the map. Martian craters are named after famous scientists (for large craters) or small villages on Earth (small craters). Since the base map is hand-drawn I also added an overlay of actual NASA topographic imagery. This way even if some of my lines are a little off, you can still see what the actual ground looks like underneath.

(I also made a list of sources here if you're interested in making your own map or want to read more)

Your art is awesome!
I really like biology and the 'How to build a human' deviation is really interesting to watch and easy to understand.
I'm definitely going to watch you! :D
