On the Map: The Art of Ryan Jones

After seeing the work of artist Ryan Jones on office fave 7×7 Magazine, we we couldn’t resist reposting. After a yearlong sojourn to Southeast Asia, Jones recently returned to his home of San Francisco, bringing with him fresh inspiration from his time abroad. Having previously worked with mixed media, most notably a mixture of pencil on paper punctuated by collage, Jones’ most recent work features a unique combination of vintage maps juxtaposed against hyper-realistic graphite drawings.

About Julie O.

A lover of all things vintage and vintage-inspired, Julie bought her first 1950’s frock in the fifth grade. Since then, Julie has become a self-described connoisseur of vintage and thrift shopping, which she shares on her blog, Orchid Grey. When she’s not scouring the racks for the perfect vintage skirt, this native New Englander can be found deftly navigating the slopes of a ski mountain, taking road-trips to the beach, and exploring new places with a vintage camera in her hand.
