Gilles Trehin is an amazing French artist. He has autism, and an incredibly creative mind. Now 32, he has created the imaginary city of Urville, which he has been working on since he was 15.The drawings of Urville are just astounding in terms of detail and execution. He also has a book of the same name, looking at the history, geography, economy, and culture of this totally imaginary city, along with 300 drawings.
