Spain-based artist Michael Tompsett has created a fun series of colorful maps made of paint splashes. Not only does he have a world map, he's also created rainbow-colored abstract maps for individual countries like Ireland, New Zealand and Australia.

"Art and design has interested me since an early age, so much so that art class was the one lesson at school I genuinely looked forward to every week," he writes on his website. "After school and university I had the fortune to be able continue my passion, working as a senior designer at Conde Nast Publications in London. After an exhilarating 12 years I bid farewell to my job and England, and moved a couple of thousand miles south to Spain. I now dedicate myself full time to my artistic pursuits in the tranquil and idyllic surroundings of a Mediterranean coastal village."

These bright art prints can be purchased on Etsy or on Tompsett's shop called artPause.

Love how you can immediately tell what map it is, yet it looks nothing like the real thing.
