Gilles Trehin is an autistic 28-year-old. Since the age of 12, he has been designing an imaginary city called Urville. He has created detailed historical, geographical, cultural, and economic descriptions of the city, as well as an absolutely extraordinary set of drawings. Check out the pics!

12 is around the age I started on my story... hmm, some kind of symmetry there, eh?

My drawings aren't as good as his, though!

It's amazing -> I wish I was that talented!

Incredible work, I love the detail. Would so love to be able to draw like this...the comments...some of them, are a disgrace and real show of NT ignorance and jealousy, I'll bet.

Trehin's work is incredible. I do the same thing as Tammet in that I draw roads and buildings. My roads have more plausible traffic flow, nut I can only draw them in two dimensions.
