Not long after my river maps were first discovered by the good people of the internet, journalists started to flood in as well. There was no stopping them :) Here you can find some of the articles I am proud of.

One of the first articles was published by the Mail Online, featuring only the river map of the contiguous USA, still referring to me by my Imgur username. A few months later they asked me for an interview which resulted in a longer and a more thorough article.

IFLScience has also found me more than once, two years apart. Being a geography nerd myself, it was never a surprise that geeky science blogs and papers started to write about my maps. Amongst others they appeared on the pages of Gizmodo, twice on GearJunkie and even on BigThink. Digg, Yahoo and BoingBoing also liked my work.

It is a really good feeling being recognized by the art you make. Reading about my own work on the pages of The Washington Post, CNN or the Atlas Obscura is something that I have never dreamed of. Not long ago I was even interviewed by The Smithsonian!

In 2019 BBC Sounds recorded an interview where I talk about map making and the story of Grasshopper Geography. Listen from 36:30.
