Compulsive Instagrammers who want to know where to find these gorgeous typographic mosaics will be disappointed to learn that they don’t actually exist.
Fauxsaics creator Nick Misani, a designer currently based in New York, illustrates and colors up to 10,000 tiles by hand, arranging them into patterns which he feels embody the city mosaic he’s creating. Misani then digitally inserts his feet into the finished illustration for scale, making this “the best foot selfie series in a fictional place” the internet has ever seen. So far he’s created a mosaic for Boston, LA, London, Atlanta, San Diego… hopefully we’ll be seeing more cities soon. Follow Misani on Instagram , or order your own Fauxsaics print here.
