Artist reimagining national park maps in the style of Tolkien

As a map guy, I find this to be pretty nifty.
Dan Bell says that he began reading Tolkien’s books when he was 11 or 12 years old, and fell in love with them. “The most appealing thing about them is that they allow your imagination to run wild,” he told The Verge. In particular, he was struck by Tolkien’s maps.

“I love the detail, and the thought processes behind them.” Bell explains, and says that he began drawing his own copies of the maps. After receiving positive feedback from friends, he thought about adapting the art style to some real world locations.
