Vlad Gerasimov · 12 July 2007
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!
Matthew Avery · long agoum. awesome.
Misha · long agoThe Funniest till now!!!
Radek Matěj · long agoIt's very illusive, I can't stop staring at it. Nice work.
fox · long agowise
Stefko · long agoOMG! Where do you get those ideas? Does it rain ideas in your town?

now again wow! wow! wow!
LucasDT · long agoUNO DE LOS MAS CREATIVOS QUE TE VI HACER, EXCELENTE!!!
Peter Kahoun · long agoOh yes, this is one of the wallpapers, because of them I hide all the icons from desktop!
Ashwin Narasimhan · long agoThis looks nice, and probably will be what happens if global warming doesn't stop.
Life Seeker · long agoSTUNNING!
darthvinyll · long agogreat stuff!
Gaby · long agoIncreible, tan bueno como todo lo que normalmente haces, pero definitivamente esta es una idea super diferente y original.
Priscila · long agoThis is awsome! Really creative, as always.
Leslie · long agoOoh! Love this!!! As a geographer by trade, this rocks my world!!
p0p0p · long agolol xDDDD
Sebastian · long agoMan! I cant stop staring at it! Awsome dude! Your imagination knows no limits.
JGB · long agoNice!
Dusan · long agoyou're the man! truly amazing
Jean Paul · long agoExcelente! muy ingenioso!!!
Appleboy · long agoA Masterpiece....
Clever! · long agoIt took me a minute to figure it out. DUH! But I love it. Neat idea, as usual. :)
judith · long agoyour productionrate is amazing! This is yet another stunning one. thanks again for the continuing surprises in my mailbox!
Emily · long agoLooooooooove it!
lisa · long agoso intriguing
bridget · long agoLOVE this wallpaper -i'm using it right now ;) i think it'd be SO awesome if it was colorful - greens and browns etc. on the "land" and blues for the oceans and seas ;)
always love your stuff - keep it coming!!!
dhamar · long agowhere's Indonesia my big beloved country? i can't find it!!!!!
Ncoats · long agoVery impressive, as usual.
SacrificialS · long agoAwesome!
doli · long agoexcellent~ I love it
feng shaun · long agosimply amazing. So much details which is good.
gareth · long agoi 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!
divya · long agoView of earth from Vlad eyes.what can be better than this.
Amazing Job.Simply loved it.thanks
Phlebas · long agoGreat skewed view of the world. Love it....and remember it's art not an atlas!
derya · long agoi envy your imagination
jimmy · long agoyou forgot to put new zealand on the map what a insult!
Vlad Gerasimov · long agoGareth, 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.
Cynthia · long agoAwesome! Stunning!
kacenka · long agoawesome!!!!
ribbot · long agoi am kinda confused
Paul · long agoWhat a great and unique way to look at our tiny planet! Thanks!
Sergio Alejandro Sotomayor Esqui · long agoMAGNIFICO!!!! AWESOME!!! TR?S BIEN!!! :D
Vlad Gheorghiu · long agoVery interesting idea. I don't see something like this often.
Christopher Barr · long agoPeople… 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.
Christopher Barr · long agoNew 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!!
blah blah blah · long agoyou forgot Okeechobee island in the floridian section of the united ocean.
Justin · long agoI think that is an amazing concept.
Krysthian · long agoLa verdad que me encantó!!!
A mi me parece que sí, le llueven ideas!!! XD!!!
Dima · long agonice
Dr. Andrew Mossberg · long agoCreative and well-done! Well executed too!
Balin leSavage · long agoExcellent. I really like this one. Your site redesign is beautiful too.
Luke · long agoWhat the heck is an 'United Ocean'. Surely you mean the Americas Ocean?
Alaalas · long agoWould 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.
Deufon · long agoand chilean Sea ??
Mike · long agoYou're missing the iPhone Screen Size for the mobile!
Spell Checker · long agoSouth Pacific Kindgom?
Oakman · long agowhere is the rest of the world? You aint showing it all.
th_k · long agoExcellent 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 agoGood picture~
But, where those river & mountain inversed from?
I think after inverted, the highest mountain is in Philippine kingdom.
trinest · long agowheres atlantus
Matt · long agoWhere's New Zealand??
Vlad Gerasimov · long agoHi 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!
Maldivian · long agolol at least my home maldives is seen
i am no bizarro · long agothis is just like the exact idea for the bizarro world for the all star superman issue in which that cubed.world appeared in it on the background, i think it's number seven.
i am no telling lies.
fooman · long agohaha, very creative. although, mediterranean is a funny name for a piece of land between two bodies of water :)
nidnarg · long agoThis is brilliant!
jeromeee · long agothe world looks so much better like this.. in my opinion..
European · long agoWhere did europe go!?
Jeff · long agoIf 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 agoCool, great idea ...
If the world was like this, shipping would not have been a big industry :)
Typos · long agoyeah 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 !!
N S Sharada Prasad · long agoTopsy turvy world
Luke B · long agoWhy is New Zealand never on the map?
howdy · long agono european ocean? ..you missed the center of the world dude! other than that - nice work!
inDIGGnation · long agoyawn.
grrlwonder · long agothat's awesome. great work!
Pablo · long agoThis 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 agoi like 'mexico land'.
very accurate and informative.
Hanna · long agoPoor work.
Vlad Olteanu · long agoThis is genius! Truly, one of your best ideas yet... I've been a fan of your work for two years now, but this is truly amazing :)
CONGRATS! May that you always remain this wise and skilled!
Pace · long agoGeologically impossible, tut.
AD69 · long agoFake
geo · long agoWhere are the Hawaiian Great Lakes?
Josue · long agoawesome. 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 agoJeff:
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.....
Irvan · long agosalute. btw, where is Indonesia ? so small.
paru · long agovald's work, to me, is always sowething different to me; everytime with a different taste of fascination
Robert Carlier · long agoFantastic! I don't know why but this reminds me of 'The Island Crimea'
Vasilii Pavlovich Aksenov's book.
All the best,
Toph · long agoBad.
woonie · long agoI tried visualizing a world where people live in the sea, while travelling on land was not possible until some sort of technological advancement came about.
Bingo · long agoCool wallpaper, but there's a typo in "South Pacific Kingdom". The "g" and "d" of kingdom are inverted!
javier · long agoMagestuosamente espectacular,felicitaciones
Beth · long agoThis 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. >.
Maria · long agothat is wild. . . . . . . but that just looks weird. . . .no big oceans. . . . hmm. . . .
good thing i can swim!!!! XD
David · long agoGreat! But...WHERE'S AUSTRALIA?????? :(
David · long agoNevermind, found it...me so stupid :).
Jamin · long agoThis 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 agohey 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 agoI 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)
zha chuanxin · long agoCool! good job
Chiemisa · long agoI think this is a very interesting concept! I really like it, despite what some others seem to think.
daviddddd · long agoThat looks awesome..haha
Ribbot · long agoOh! its opposites,K!
Ludmila · long agoIs this antypodes?
ilgattopunx · long agoi 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 ;)
Leonardo · long agoMuito bom.... é o que o aquecimento global vai causar! estarei em breve nadando no oceano brasileiro ;)
Parabéns pelo trabalho!
Bora P · long agoCool Work. :)
ACE · long agohaha! I like it!!!
Mattias · long agoReally nice! What is the unnamed city on the left with the church(?) drawing next to it?
gjakova · long agosuper dishka a

Ivica · long agoMagic World!!!
3und · long agoGive China Back! Seriously
ANGIE · long agoYO SOY MUY INTELIGENTE
MICO · long agoHoOooO.........if it is being
Where is my country
Very creative idea... but... A p · long agoVery 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'

evian · 10 February 2008looks good~
tripleX · 11 February 2008For 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.
Jennifer Starr · 11 February 2008I love this wallpaper, but the dual screen version for my resolution cuts off Arcticland and the Antartic Ocean. Boo!!

Chris · 5 March 2008Nice work! I made sketched of this sort of idea too, and now matter how you look at it or color it, it messes with your head because it's hard to forget the shapes as being the real world map.
The world as 71% land... imagine the salinity of the water.

Alex · 26 January 2009La forma de las montañas y el texto en Herculanum me recuerdan al mapa de Avatar: the last airbender.
Supongo que es coincidencia.
Hauer · 6 February 2009Like Beth said, English Lake should not be written next to Scotland. British Lake maybe, but not English Lake.
martha · 7 February 2009How did you happen to add Labrador City to this map? That's where i live! Cool map

What? · 25 April 2011You gotta PAY just to download the widescreen version? That's outrageous and incredibly greedy. I will not pay to join your silly little website just for 1 wallpaper. That's a shame too, because it is very nice. Greedy, just greedy.
What? · 25 April 2011Ha! Found it elsewhere on the internet. This is one savvy shopper who won't be paying for someone's work when it should be shared for free.
miriam · 26 April 2011lo scrivo in inglese... beautiful!!!
Nyxx · 27 August 2011Hey there -- absolutely love the site, especially the global wallpapers. Already have them on a cycle on my iMac's desktop. Incredible.

Dianne Mae · 14 June 2018This 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!
luojianhui · 22 November 2018一看到就喜欢上了，这个壁纸；。
Matz · 19 November 2020I saw this map years ago at the Astana (now Nur Sultan) Airport in Kazakstan as the backdrop of a bistro bar. I was totally impressed but couldn´t find it anywhere, now I got it! Many Thanks! Brilliant Work!
