The Daily Hotness: Moe maps

This is such a good thing and totally not creepy at all. It’s impressive, creative, artistic, and adorable. It’s like if finding shapes in clouds was multiplied by a factor of several thousand. Just one more reason I should learn how to art — to be able to discern awesome things from country outlines! Though, as an Italian, I feel a bit one-upped here. Someone want to render a chic stiletto over Italy for me?
