Origin

Stephen Wiltshire is a British artist who has been diagnosed with autism since the age of three. He is known for having a photographic memory and being able to draw realistic landscape scenes after only seeing said place once. Panoramas and closeups of London, Tokyo, Rome, Dubai, NYC, Jerusalem and Shanghai are often based from a short helicopter ride overhead. Even the exact number of columns on the Pantheon from a glancing view were done in exquisite detail!

​Effects

Wiltshire's pen has absorbed his remarkable ability, duplicating his memory and drawing abilities. Allows the artist to tap into whatever way they best interpret their surroundings and have flawless memory from the shortest journeys. Visual learners will be able to visualize and sketch out any information, while audio thinkers remembers sound landscapes they can reconstruct with a software program, rubber chicken and whistle.

Given their ease of recreating previous landscapes, their body reacts oddly when they physically return. After a few hours they start to fade into the surrounding buildings and roads. They can enter and exit like a ghost. Until they become stuck and turn into the landscape they once cherished.
