An old but esthetical European map

Maps always facinated me since I was young. A beautifull pattern of lines, the borders of countries, rivers and than the millions of weird names of each town whereever it exists. Every country in Europe has it's own language, it used to have its own coins, but that is changed nowadays.
Another thing what has been changing our routine and way of traveling is that almost everybody has its own GPS. Nobody has to look closely to a country- or citymap anymore because this wonderfull satelite system shows us around. What about all those cartographers and map-makers.... Are they unemployed right now? What about all those old fashioned crafts like landschape painters, now we have very easy cameras. Oil paint is almost forbidden but a good painter is still hot fortunately.
I keep prefering watching maps instead of using that familiar and populair "tom-tom".
I want to find my way home in an old-facioned way!

The map: 1.80 x 80 cm
Graphite pencil and acrylics on canvas.
