This planet looks strangely familiar... But something has changed... Hmm :-) As usual, Adobe Photoshop only. UPDATE: for simplier version of this wallpaper without any text, see next wallpaper!

i am not at all pleased with this image you have completely left off new zealand which is next to australia you if you are going to do an image like this you should at least put all the countries on it!
tt long ago
New Zealand always gets left out
divya long ago
View of earth from Vlad eyes.what can be better than this. Amazing Job.Simply loved it.thanks
Phlebas long ago
Great skewed view of the world. Love it....and remember it's art not an atlas!

i envy your imagination
Mattias long ago
Really nice! What is the unnamed city on the left with the church(?) drawing next to it?
jimmy long ago
you forgot to put new zealand on the map what a insult!
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Gareth, Jimmy - I guess you talk about standard sizes of wallpaper, 800x600 - 1600x1200, in fact, New Zealand is there but only in widescreen versions! I did not notice it was cropped. I will try to fix it soon.

Very interesting idea. I don't see something like this often.
Christopher Barr long ago
People… take it easy. It is the initial impression [first second or two] that separates great art from the not so great art. Anything [art, music, sculptures et cetera] can be trashed by insecure egos. Did you like this piece the instant you saw it? If so, then it is great art. Allow the cartographers include New Zealand. Incidenatally, I'm a sailor. I love New Zealand.

New Zealanders- You should first be upset at all of the traitors that kept the America's Cup in land locked Switzerland. After you win back the cup, you can complain about Vlad's exclusion of you on his map!!
rakzo long ago
Bueno eh leido a un tio llorando porque no le pusieron a Nueva Zelanda, bueno si no salio Centroamerica ni algo similar, pues bueno que se le hará hasta mucho con apreciar el excelente trabajo de Vlad. Saludos.

What the heck is an 'United Ocean'. Surely you mean the Americas Ocean?
Alaalas long ago
Would that be the Hawaiian Pits? Contrary is okay, but should be a bit more sardonic, no? We do cook pigs in pits, but the whole thing just isn't sarcastic enough.

Excellent concept, and while I get the "inverted world" thing, I don't get why the cardinal directions are also inverted. This doesn't keep me from liking it tons.
Benson long ago
Good picture~ But, where those river & mountain inversed from? I think after inverted, the highest mountain is in Philippine kingdom.

Where's New Zealand??
Vlad Gerasimov long ago
Hi all! Answering popular question about New Zealand :-) I initially designed this wallpaper in wide-screen size (16:9), and when I saved standard sizes (4:3) New Zealand has been cropped, so it is now avialable for registered users only :-) I am playing with my Photoshop file now to make resize things and make New Zealand fit into 4:3 screens, but I dont like results so far. Thanks again!

this is just like the exact idea for the bizarro world for the all star superman issue in which that appeared in it on the background, i think it's number seven. i am no telling lies.

If you have your compass in the lower right hand corner reversed, then why is the "North Atlantic Kingdom" now located south of the "South Atlantic Kingdom"??
Arun Sivanandan long ago
Cool, great idea ... If the world was like this, shipping would not have been a big industry :)
Typos long ago
yeah even i like the fact that Maldives is there on the map...really nice...apparently he has a DUAL monitor version of this...maybe he's got the missing things on that one...cheers all !!

that's awesome. great work!
Pablo long ago
This is an insult for the Latin American people. Besides Brazil, there are many more countries in South America (Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay just to name a few.) Why do all the "oceans" are called like former continents and "South America Ocean" is called like a country?. This is just an insult.
kidooo long ago
i like 'mexico land'. very accurate and informative.
Hanna long ago
Poor work.

Very nice work.. But I came here to comment about the South/North Kingdoms and Oceans... :) :D Maybe they need to release a 1.1 version of the Map.. :D P.S.: Excellent idea this 'Inverted Planet'
Josue long ago
awesome. my eyes are having a hard time inverting reality to surrealism imagination. when i focus on the creative image my eyes twitch and irritate only to return to a normal state. someone help me... ARRGHH ! great design =)
huahua long ago
Jeff: If you have your compass in the lower right hand corner reversed, then why is the "North Atlantic Kingdom" now located south of the "South Atlantic Kingdom"?? ============================== right, the "north arrow" points downward, so the south atlantic kindom should be in the upper side of the north A....K.....

salute. btw, where is Indonesia ? so small.

vald's work, to me, is always sowething different to me; everytime with a different taste of fascination

Cool wallpaper, but there's a typo in "South Pacific Kingdom". The "g" and "d" of kingdom are inverted!
javier long ago
Magestuosamente espectacular,felicitaciones
Beth long ago
This is really cool. Reminds me of Middle Earth. One thing, though. English Lake is actually written next to Scotland and Ireland. England can't be used interchangeably for any part of the British mainland. Sorry, but I'm Scottish and it gets to us. >.

Jamin long ago
This is, by far, the most amazing wallpaper you've created... I've had more impressed comments in the last few days about my desktop than in my whole life of using a computer... You Rock!
dhamar long ago
hey vlad, a very controversial wallpaper,huh?!! you've replied some question about New Zealand. why are you ignoring about mine? where's Indonesia? i can see that you've drawn Indonesia, but you didn't write it. in fact, you write down phillipine kingdom and taiwan Lake which are much smaLLer than Indonesia. need your explanation.
Mike Ley long ago
I love this wallpaper, but is there any way you could make it exactly the same, just not inverted? (essentially a normal earth that looks as sleek)

i guess, as an argie, i can complain too for calling the whole south cone "brazilian"... imho, you should've used made up names, it's awkward to see just some of the "real" names. specially having in mind that brazil beat us in the last america cup :( kudos to your imagination, nevertheless ;)

For my country: The Netherlands there will be not much difference. At the moment we live about 7 meters under sealevel, so on your map we should live on land also! In The Upperlands.

This is the first image I have discovered from you almost 10 years ago - it made me look for more and I was not disappointed! I'm now browsing the entire gallery and for some I am also reading various comments... which shows that as life is in general, you cannot please everyone. But you are an amazing artist, no question about it! Thank you so much for sharing your gorgeous work!
