Artist draws his face on the world with GPS and DHL

As a project, this campaign by artist Erik Nordenankar and DHL is quite clever: ship a small package with a GPS locator around the world to geo-map a global self-portrait of the artist. But I'd be more impressed if DHL hadn't been in on the project: some of the circuitous Baltic curlicues necessary to etch-a-sketch Nordenankar's bed head hair are simply too implausible without having a special delivery plane devoted to the task.
