The modern world reimagined as Pangea, the one continent

by Jack Brummet

Reddit user LikeWolvesDo, recently took a map of the ancient supercontinent Pangea, surrounded by the one ocean, Panthalassa and drew current political borders on it.

According to Live Science, "Even our current map, with separate continents, is changing."

“Right now, for instance, Australia is inching toward Asia, and the eastern portion of Africa is slowly peeling off from the rest of the continent.”

Map of where I've been in the world

Click to enlarge. Isn't it nice they didn't use the Mercator projection?

This is from the facebook application, "where I've been." This is by country and state. The city map, I am struggling with...anyhow, where I've been is dark, and where I haven't been (but mostly hope to go) is grey...

Painting: map 12

I have painted several of these maps over the years, but I still haven't done the one I really want to do. If I do paint it, I guess I'll know it. Of the ones I've done, this is the only one I own, so it's a bit of a sentimental favorite. Apologies for the photography. I just can't get the hang of photographing paintings and drawings.
