Artist Rachel Evans uses spirographs, those geometric drawing tools popular with kids, to create colorful world maps like this. After drawing the shapes, she hand-colors them, then cuts them out and pastiches them together until they look like the world. Here’s the result: something like a very happy tornado map.

You can check out the process in the video below, and purchase prints of the maps through Evans’s site.
