A Map Of The World, Rendered In Spirographs

Artist Rachel Evans uses simple tools to make stunning geometric maps.

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.
