Atlas with Human or Animal form. Awesome Illustration by Fernando Vicente


Fernando Vicente an illustrator from Madrid, has been developing his style of combining illustration with painting since the early 80′s. I have selected the themes of Atlas Illustrations as those captured my mind. His images are innovative and real striking. Fernando with a symbolic way illustrates human and animal forms onto the countries and continents of a map. Map are becoming living creatures conveying a message for each one.

I am absolutely fascinated by his work.
