Map of the Internet 1.0

I started making maps about 2 and half years ago, and it has quickly become my free-time hobby. Until March 2013, I was working only on minor projects, often making commisioned fantasy map drawings as a side work.

In April, I started to work on my first major project – massive scale political map of the world, which is also on deviantart. In December, I started to work on other two projects, Map of the Internet and Map of the Stereotypes.

I was originally inspired by map of the internet created by xkcd, showing most popular social networks as countries and regions, back in 2010. It was not my original idea, but I extended it to such a scale for the first time. I used photoshop for the majority of drawing.

About Heretic

I design video games for a living, write fiction, political theory and poetry for personal amusement, and train regularly in Western European 16th century swordwork. On frequent occasion I have been known to hunt for and explore abandoned graveyards, train tunnels and other interesting places wherever I may find them, but there is absolutely no truth to the rumor that I am preparing to set off a zombie apocalypse. Nothing that will stand up in court, at least. I use paranthesis with distressing frequency, have a deep passion for history, anthropology and sociological theory, and really, really, really hate mayonnaise. But I wash my hands after the writing. Promise.
