Maps and Cartography Linked to Portrait Drawings

Using the the contours of the land to accentuate the ones on his portraits.
British Artist Edward Fairburn has been featured here on DesignStack before, I will put a link below.  I have revisited his site and have found more interesting work from him.  I love the way he makes use of the contours of the map to enhance his drawings, the style reflecting the background he has chose to draw on.  One last thing, he has a client list that is shared by many accomplished artists, but one stands out, see if you can pick it out: "Past and present clients include Penguin, Nike, New Republic magazine, the British Army and the Secret Intelligence Service/MI6".
