What happens when you put a round world on a flat map? (Map on an orange peel)

I’ve been wanting to do this project for a while. I just wanted a visual example of what happens when cartographers put a spherical, round world onto a flat map—Greenland in particular always seems to get the worst of it. Anyways, hope you enjoy my orange-peel map. : )
