What a month. Damn, i went through intense stories over there, falling in love not only with these wonderful cables and electric systems on the street. It's surprising when you meet somebody so close to you, so far away. The drawing is as busy as the city, this is how i map flowing chaos.
Paris smells like piss and its a tough city. But i love it anyway. 3 weeks of drawing inside the subway system and around HLM buildings. I like it rough you know. But for your convenience i also went to see some classic highlights such as Sacré Coeur, Arc de Triomphe and a keychain of the Eiffel-tower :))
I came back to London full-time drawing for 8 days and created this mental map of the places i knew when i was living there for half a year. Mostly urban areas of east and central London, including my faves tower bridge and barbican center. If you know London, you will feel home in this urban jungle.
Born in Berlin, this was the first city i drew in this style. I was drawing on the streets of mostly Prenzlauer Berg and in Kreuzberg techno clubs as well as in buses and on train stations. It's not a sightseeing map for tourists; this is an insight to my mental maps of what i call home.
