This is the wild work of art the internet asked for


The internet produces some strangely wonderful things when you ask it for input -- just ask anyone who saw Twitch play Pokémon. If you need more proof, though, you don't need to look any further than artist Ben Redford's crowdfunded opus, Internetopia. The bizarre-yet-beautiful drawing is the result of Redford agreeing to draw whatever online contributors wanted in the space they were willing to pay for; every dollar paid got a 1.5 by 1.5 inch piece of paper. It took three months to finish, but it's arguably worth the effort. You'll see Futurama-style heads, a plea to save a racetrack, and seemingly everything else in between. Only a fraction of the final piece is visible above, but you can check out the project in all its glory at the source link. And before you ask: despite the internet's propensity toward porn, all but three of the requests are safe for work.
