I am a Moscow-born-and-raised graphic designer and illustrator. I love drawing (duh!), travelling, pop culture, and dogs.
Maps By Maria Ku
During the pandemic, as many of my friends were watching Contagion and the like, I wanted to create a list of what I consider a) better and b) more fitting movies for the moment. So here it is, in all its incomplete glory!
This place is special to me because this is where I grew up. The map is, in a way, my very own "Penny Lane" - an illustrated ode to the residential Moscow, Russia neighborhood of my youth, seen through a fairytale lens of sorts. It's not big on landmarks, but if you want to come face to face with a moose or see a power plant up close and personal, this is absolutely the place to visit.
