Clever Google Maps Manipulations by Christoph Niemann

Tell me this isn't the most original thing you've seen all week. And don't expect anything less than original from Christoph Niemann, a regular illustrator over at The New York Times online with his own opinion blog - Abstract City.

Christoph illustrates in the cartographic style of Google Maps, and he does it with wit! I love it. So much so that I'm having a hard time picking a favorite right now. Share your favorite with me on twitter! And be sure to head on over to his portfolio for more clever illustrations.
