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.
The capital of Brazil, inaugurated on April 21, 1960, stands out for its modern architecture and is considered a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO. The main monuments and government buildings were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, and the urban plan by the architect Lúcio Costa. 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!
I spent three and half years of living in Minneapolis before I moved to New York, and I still have a soft spot for this unique Midwest city. So I created this illustrated map of local art & fun spots of Minneapolis. It reminds me of the good old days of hanging out at my favorite spots in the city. Be sure to visit in the summer!
Berlin's Grunewald is a forest filled with walking paths, beaches, a beer garden, hotel, museums, and even an art gallery housed in an old hunting lodge. And of course it’s all accessible by multiple forms of public transportation.
A piece I made for Christina Hess' Illustration Studio class. Each religious figure on the map marks the location of the cathedral it is housed in. The warm colors are inspired by classic Italian ceramic work. Two portraits of Italian sculptors(Bernini and Michelangelo) are featured on the left.
The famous university town of Oxford is a wonderful place to visit. Here are a few of my favorite things to do there. The many (free!) museums are excellent places to spend some time, and if the weather is jolly then a trip to the botanic garden or a boat ride on the river Isis is a great idea.

I'm fortunate enough to live close to London and have always enjoyed its delights, from historical, gastronomical, theatrical and musical. I'm hoping that every month throughout 2017 I will submit a map here on TDAC. It will mostly be of world cities but I may go off at a tangent depending on how I feel !
I grew up in New York. The *other* New York - the vast expanse of farmland and wilderness that comprises almost everything outside New York City. The town I grew up in, in Fulton County (just northeast of the counties on the map), was the center of the leather and glove making industry during World War II and into the 1950s and '60s. I always assumed that the Leatherstocking Region took its name from the leather trade. However, instead it comes from James Fenimore Cooper's Leatherstocking Tales, a series of books that includes The Last of the Mohicans.
Florence is such a magnificent city and I've had the pleasure of visiting several times. I have wanted to create a map based on E.M.Forster's novel, and subsequent film adaptation for many years. I have included some of the city's iconic architecture with reference to its role in the novel/ film. I hope to have captured some of Florence's enchantment and romance.
