Arnhem, Gelderland, NL
Winter solstice inspired me to make this map of 'my' Veluwe on a long and dark winter night.
National Park Hoge Veluwe is beautiful in every season, but I have to say that I'm indeed very much looking forward to longer days again! (and I'm still wishing for a bit of snow ;) )

I was born and raised in Beijing, China. The Drum Tower area is one of my favorite places in my hometown. There are thousands of little Hutongs (Beijing term for "Narrow Alleyways") which are housings, small boutiques, cafes, and -- Live music venues. Here are some of my favorite places. Beijing also has a strong tradition in Punk/Rock&Metal ;)

I was lucky enough to have a great friend, that won a weekend in NYC and took me with her, and this map is a 'flashback' to that great weekend! I could never thank her enough!! It was a first for both of us, and we crammed as much into those 3 days & 3 nights as humanly possible!! and I tried to put the 'high-lights' of that magical weekend into this map! We covered a lot of ground in 3 days, lots of walking...got the key sites in...lots of laughs & great memories made! I left the background white, because I thought the story was 'colourful' enough for such a colourful city! (and the feet featured at 30 Rockefeller & Battery Park...yeah, those were our selfies!)
I'm taking my dad to Cornwall for his birthday this year, so in anticipation I made him a map. I kept it fairly traditional (geographically it's pretty accurate) for the old man, and I've indicated the train routes, as it is his favourite mode of transportation. It certainly got us both excited for the trip!
This year's part-shade container garden is brought to you by a Mother's Day gift of eight bags of Sea Soil, some West Coast Seeds (and some saved seeds), and Mother Nature. I included several highlights from various sketches made throughout the growing season. Amazingly, there is enough food elsewhere in the creek for the squirrels that they leave my humble crop of beans, greens, and tomatoes alone. After two years of observing the local conditions and critters, I am still experimenting and learning what works in this garden.
