I’m a graphic artist living in Aarhus, Denmark and I work under the name DAU-DAW. I grew up in the countryside where I developed a great love for both nature and animals – all of which are reflected in my work below. I spend between a few days and several weeks creating each of these little worlds.
The “maps” are all divided into different countries and every mountain, every lake, every city and every ocean in these pieces are named after everything relevant to the title of each piece. Take for example Felidae – Land of the Lion. Everything in this “map” is named after both fictional and actual lion species that are either extinct or still around today.
No actual geographical locations are presented in any of these pieces. Everything has been drawn from scratch by me using mostly Illustrator. I hope you like it!
