From May through October I love to buy local & seasonal foods at nearby farmers' markets. It's great to be able to walk or bike to a market any day of the week to pick up fresh and tasty ingredients for a meal. As a project for the Folio Focus group, I've mapped out my favourite westend markets for each day of the week as a reference guide.
The National Capital Region of Canada also referred as Ottawa–Gatineau. It is a city divided by a river on one side Ontario province and on the other side Québec province (French part of Canada). The city is small and offer a cultural diversity and activities. Just 15 minutes from downtown Ottawa–Gatineau you are immerse by the nature and outdoor recreation of Gatineau Park. Since 1832, The Rideau Canal is the World's Largest Skating Rink. The National Capital also offer the National Art Gallery, the War Museum and also the History Museum. I did this illustration with #Foliofocus spring group :)
Created for Folio Focus 10 week portfolio course.
This map is of Hull (UK) marina.
Hull is the 2017 City of Culture and the marina area holds some wonderful events from festivals to street fairs.
Using a simple and bold colour palette I create a fun and vibrant map to celebrate its culture.
I lived in the little city of Dessau in eastern Germany for two years while going to grad school. Along with creating wonderful friendships, I most remember the delicious food, the historical architecture, and the charming rural feel of the surrounding forests.
A capital do Brasil, inaugurada em 21 de abril de 1960, destaca-se por sua arquitetura moderna e é considerada Patrimônio Cultural da Humanidade, pela UNESCO. Os principais monumentos e edifícios governamentais foram projetados pelo arquiteto Oscar Niemeyer, e o plano urbanístico pelo arquiteto Lúcio Costa. Muito além da movimentação política, Brasília é uma cidade dinâmica, bonita e com gente legal, que adora viver nela. Essa ilustração é uma pequena homenagem à cidade onde nasci e cresci e da qual gosto muito, apesar da enorme dificuldade de me locomover por ela sem carro.

Despite the politics, Brasilia is a beautiful and dynamic city with cool people who love living in it. This illustration is a small tribute to the city where I was born and raised. Although it is inconvenient not being able to get around easily without a car, I love Brasilia!
