Seoul, South Korea, South Korea
I am an illustrator Yebin Mun currently living and working in Seoul. I used to go these places with my mon when she visited me. Actually, I love every part of Seoul!!!! Especiall, Bukchon hanok vvillage. I wish you could visit there oneday. You will love it.
Hong Kong, HK
Another of my favourite places in Hong Kong. One of the city's quirkiest modes of transport is the Central - Mid-levels Escalator, built as a connection between the financial district and residential areas further up the hillside.
From its starting point on Queen's Road Central, the escalator snakes its way through one of Hong Kong's oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods - an eclectic blend of wet markets, colonial structures, hip restaurants, watering holes and art galleries. Like the city as a whole, it keeps a precarious balance between age-old tradition and unashamed modernity.
Japan is a fascinating place. It has everything - islands, forests, mountains, volcanoes, rivers and lakes... This map explores just some of the geography of the country. Often the initial image 'Japan' conjures up is of a megacity like Tokyo, but we should not forget the beautiful landscape that covers over 2/3 of the country.

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.
Enjoy the beach in the winter. It's relaxing and there are so much fun things you can do. This map is an invitation to Zandvoort, especially if you are in the Amsterdam area. But let it inspire you for an "off season" beach anywhere! #sketchbookskool Let's make a map.
