There’s more than one way to play Angry Birds. You can sit staring at a screen, or you can bike around the city of Baltimore creating a giant geoglyphic map to create a screen shot from the game.

Using his bicycle fitted with a GPS device, the Twitter user @WallyGPX created a scene from the hit video game by riding all over the city on carefully planned out routes.

This isn't his first drawing using Charm City as a palette. @WallyGPX has done depictions of the 2012 March Madness Bracket, the iconic video game Donkey Kong, and a 100th anniversary commemorative of the Titanic's last voyage.

That’s all pretty cool, but may we suggest a project that would be the pride of Baltimore? Do a full-scale portrait of Omar from The Wire.
