An enterprising artist is drawing a lot of interest because he has taken on one of the biggest concepts known to man: The Universe.
Pablo Carlos Budassi is drawing eyes across the internet for his dazzling logarithmic visualization of the observable universe which he created and uploaded to Wikimedia Commons.
This spectacular illustration shows our solar system at the very center, followed by “inner and outer planets, Kuiper belts, Oort cloud, Alpha Centauri, Perseus Arm, Milky Way galaxy, Andromeda galaxy, nearby galaxies, Cosmic Web, Cosmic microwave radiation and Big Bang’s invisible plasma on the edge” according to file’s description on Wikimedia Commons.
In an interview, Budassi told Tech Insider that he was inspired to craft the visualization while he was drawing hexaflexagons.
Then when I was drawing hexaflexagons for my sons birthday souvenirs I started drawing central views of the cosmos and the solar system,” he told the website. “That day the idea of a logarithmic view came and in the next days I was able to it with Photoshop using images from NASA and some textures created by my own.”
