Australian Cyclist Recreates Nirvana’s ‘Nevermind’ Cover Art Using GPS

Nirvana‘s iconic album Nevermind just turned 30 (hello deluxe reissue!) and to celebrate, an Aussie cyclist has delivered a very, uh, unique tribute.

Adelaide-based cycling enthusiast Pete Stokes recreated the LP’s famous cover art — of the swimming baby chasing a one dollar bill — using GPS tracking.

How, you ask?

Stokes cycled about 150km on a single-speed bike through the streets of Adelaide, using exercise tracking app Strava to sketch the outline of the submerged bub.

It wasn’t Stokes’ first rodeo either — apparently he’s earned quite the rep as a human etch-a-sketch on wheels, previously mapping out a portrait of Ludwig van Beethoven to mark the composer’s 250th birthday, along with drawings of dinosaurs, dragons and even a selfie.

Speaking to The Guardian, Stokes revealed the Nirvana baby artwork took about eight hours to polish off (with a few bakery stops in between of course).

“It’s whatever takes my fancy at the time. Nirvana has its place in my record collection,” he explained. “When this album came out I was in high school – I was about 14, and that’s when you’re forming your love of music.”

Check out his masterpiece below.

And in other news, the now grown-up Nirvana baby is now suing the band for child exploitation over the iconic album cover.
