David Anthony Harman is the Knoxville, Tennessee-based maker of Native Maps. Inspired by long bike rides throughout his hometown, David began compiling an intricate map, and eventually expanded the project to other cities. He believes that neighborhoods are personal, and wanted to "create an elegant, research-driven, handmade map not only for the local, but for the native." Each map is screen printed by hand in small batches with acrylic ink on heavyweight archival paper.

- Meet The Maker
A fan of taking the long way home and getting off the beaten path, painter David Harman and a friend set out to make an accurate map of a small neighborhood in South Dallas. With the idea that exploring neighborhoods is personal, they wanted to create something intimate—not only for the locals, but for the natives. Together with his wife, Becca, they bought some paper and started creating and printing intricate maps of cities across the US by hand.
