Among my projects I have pulled most of my recent artistic endeavors together to create a united effort to share some of my favorite designs/art.  I’ve had an Etsy store for some time, but have let it lapse, until now.  So I’ve decided to call my latest drive my “Grand Opening!”

If you get a chance, feel free to visit and “like” your favorites.  I’ll select from the two most popular designs for my grand opening giveaway!

Turning Cartography to “Artography”

There is no such word as Artography, but the hope of Madison, Wisconsin artist/cartographer (mapper) Doug Crews-Nelson is to make an impact in the world of art with his special angle on map design.About Doug Crews-Nelson
Doug’s background begins out of college, where he created maps using pen and ink, over twenty years ago. From there, he worked for a local mapping company, scribing elements for composite to films for press plates. There he began developing his computer cartography skills. He became a business partner at Magellan Mapping Company. There his repertoire grew to include graphic design. He experimented with fine art design on his computer using top of line graphic design programs, and getting an education on print substrates.As print cartographers are being squeezed out of the market by online mapping services, Doug has been happy to turn his focus toward reacquainting people with a love of the printed map, combining accurate information, in a clean and effective way, coupled with elegant design and element. And that’s the twist, these maps can be used as a geographic resource as well as stand alone art.As a commission artist, Doug works with the media he is most familiar with; paper, adhesive fabrics, clear acrylic, bio-materials, certain woods, ceramic tiles, and so on. Projects range from household, office, and public spaces. Products are wide and creative, including; framed compositions, murals, and laser/router cut printed elements.
