The latest issue of the Dutch edition of National Geographic Magazine has a short news item about an event the society put on last month, for Earth Day:

The guy in the foreground is Wubbo Ockels, first Dutch person in space and a bit of a techno-celebrity nowadays. But in the background is the special National Geographic globe, produced by Oolaalaa and using the maps I developed for them.

So I'm kinda cheating on this one, as it's only a *photo* of one of my maps, but I'm pretty proud of it anyway :P

Thanks guys. Don't know what the next (business) milestone will be... Already working on maps for an atlas, which was another one of my 'professional dreams'...

I'm sure I'll find some other goals to keep me occupied :)

I know the feeling. Whatever the circumstance, you have bragging rights. As a photographer, I am thrilled to see my images in a book which someone else has authored; we all make our contribution.
Keep expanding our universe,, please.
