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!

LOVE 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!!! xo bridget

excellent~ I love it

gareth · long ago
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!

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.

you forgot Okeechobee island in the floridian section of the united ocean.

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.

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.....

Robert Carlier · long ago
Fantastic! I don't know why but this reminds me of 'The Island Crimea' Vasilii Pavlovich Aksenov's book. All the best, Robert

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!

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)

Nice 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.

Devakumar · 25 March 2008

Pratik · 9 December 2008
Can you do something like reversing green and blue of the globe/world map in a wallpaper? Of course you CAN do, but will you? It would be great!

Hauer · 6 February 2009
Like Beth said, English Lake should not be written next to Scotland. British Lake maybe, but not English Lake.

You 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.

Nyxx · 27 August 2011
Hey there -- absolutely love the site, especially the global wallpapers. Already have them on a cycle on my iMac's desktop. Incredible. I'll be writing a cover story on your brilliant design. If that's O.K. with you? cultofaraluen . com

Ok except for the fact that they wouldn't be oceans considering they are surrounded by land.

Dianne Mae · 14 June
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!

Great skewed view of the world. Love it....and remember it's art not an atlas!

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.

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!!

Good picture~ But, where those river & mountain inversed from? I think after inverted, the highest mountain is in Philippine kingdom.

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!

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.

Cool wallpaper, but there's a typo in "South Pacific Kingdom". The "g" and "d" of kingdom are inverted!

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. >.

David · long ago
Nevermind, found so stupid :).

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.

Chiemisa · long ago
I think this is a very interesting concept! I really like it, despite what some others seem to think.

Ribbot · long ago
Oh! its opposites,K!

ilgattopunx · long ago
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 ;)
