This is Stephen Wiltshire, mentioned in the article about the autistic kid who invented a city. He draws giant detailed cityscapes from memory with incredible accuracy.

There is a documentary about him where they compare his drawings with photos, and whilst not 100% (certain shapes like ellipses can have slightly different trajectories in his mind) the amount of items which are spot on (number of windows/houses/buildings) is staggering. Well worth a watch.

Oh and his favourite possession is his ipod, which he listens to music on whilst he draws (which can take anything up to 4 or 5 days solid for each cityscape).

If you've not heard of him before check this out! (HD)

PS: I like watching talented people do what they're good at.
