Artist's Description

I got the idea of this map during my recent flight from Moscow to New York. The screen in front of me was showing flight route, including names of towns below our current location, changing quickly, as we were flying above Europe. This made me think – on all maps (except very detailed ones), you will meet the same set of cities – mostly capitals. This artwork is about all small towns that remain unnoticed by casual viewers of world maps.
I only included towns names, and not everything else, it was intentional – country borders, rivers, most lakes, etc. I was even considering deleting the border between oceans and earth, but then decided to keep it :-)
I used Google Maps as source of information. Obviously, I had to pick small towns randomly, because I had to make text large enough to be readable on computer screen. So if you live in a small town, but it is not listed on this map, please please please do not request to add it :-)
This artwork may look too “busy”, because it is more suited for large-sized printing. I will work on publishing it to as many sources as I can. Please watch http://www.vladstudio.com/wallpaper/?world_map_... for updates if you want to get it printed, or contact me from http://www.vladstudio.com/contact/ .
The “wallpaper” version of artwork is cropped (sorry, Alaska!) to better fit 16:9 and 4:3 monitors. The original artwork is not cropped, and so will be the prints.
The map is not accurate, and is not meant to be so. All shapes and locations are approximate.
It took about a week to complete the map (2-3 hours each day).
If I may, I dedicate this map to Antoine de Saint Exupéry.
Enjoy! Thanks for viewing!
