A cartoon version of the Inverted World with strongly exaggerated relief against a background of twinkling stars.
In this world all the land is water and all the water land. Continents are oceans and oceans are continents; islands are lakes and lakes are islands. A planet with more than twice as much land area as ours, grouped around a few enormous water basins.
We see the Canadian Ocean in the north and the Brazilian Ocean in the south. These two bodies of water, also known as the American Oceans, are connected by the Mexican Sea and the Strait of Panama. On the left we see the gigantic Pacific continent, largely covered with deserts, to the right the smaller and more diverse Atlantic continent.
There are also Asian / Australian and European / African versions of this work as well as a flat world map.

My work can be located in the border regions of photography, painting and computer visuals. With my company 3Develop I do work in commission but I use the same techniques, skills and software to make free work. I am originally an architect and I live in Rotterdam; for that reason the architecture of that city is a major (but not the only) source of inspiration. But also travel to countries like Iceland and Britain, or walks in the Netherlands, provide much material. Seeing and showing quality and beauty, that is what my work is about.
