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.
Ahmedabad, in western India, is the largest city in the heart of Gujarat State. The Sabarmati River runs through its center. The city was named after Mughal king Ahmedshah in 16th Century and has got rich architectural history from different time periods.
Dublin intrigued me when i was a kid. I used to indulged myself in legends and tales(gaelic mythology is my favorite) which rich my childhood.
That's why i draw a Oscar wilde, christ church, College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity of Queen Elizabeth near Dublin and national liberaty
Kyoto is a historic city in Japan where culture and art meets. And it's a series of literary maps which contain fictional and movie characters. Hence, this map of literary Kyoto i had drawn displays Onmyouji (traditional sorcerer in japan), shrine and Kiyomizu (temple)
