Sea creatures of Japanese map

Sea creatures in shape of the Japanese map. Projects inspired by the distinctively ray shaped Hokkaido island I see whenever viewing the map of Japan.

The "prehistoric whale" painting below also employs the same shapes, with the East Asian shoreline forming the cloud pattern in the background. I did a slightly altered version of this as well, with a modern baleen whale type creature.

I'd also love to revisit the blue whale map (with island of Sakhalin as a 'shark') one day again; work it into a sort of 'kindergarden map poster', with further stylized characters and brighter colors.

Poster of the fish map is currently available in Coordiration store as both labeled and unlabeled versions.
