One of the creepiest and also the most interesting bits of human history is the abandonment of man made objects and places when nature takes over. This map illustrates 4 of my favorite abandoned theme parks in 4 different European countries.
Taronga Zoo is an amazing place to explore and discover wildlife. I visited it last winter when I was on vacation in Sydney. Unfortunately, large fires happened at the same time. This piece is to commemorate the wild animals killed in the fire and hope that people do not despise the power of nature.
This place is special to me because it reminds me of my childhood. When my family moved out of state, my sister and I still remained close to our mutual best friend from our hometown in upstate NY. Though we didn’t see each other often, we could always count on spending one magical weekend together in the summer! Every summer my sister and I would spend a few weeks visiting our grandparents just south of Lake George, NY. Conveniently, our best friends’ grandparents had a cabin just north of Lake George. So naturally, Lake George became our spot! Martha’s Dandee Cream was always the drop off/ pick up spot, and from there it was a weekend filled with mini golf, theme parks, arcades, and kitsch statues (it was’t until years later that I realized not every area has these weird old theme park statues running rampant)! Now that we are adults and have cars of our own, our meeting spots have changed, but every once in awhile a drive through the village of Lake George is on the agenda and it’s retro charm never disappoints!
I watched our bouvier, Ferris from my upstairs, studio window last week, playing in the backyard, amusing himself & just thought it would make a great map! We can’t always travel afar, but we can appreciate where we are, and make the best of what we have, and I certainly saw him doing that! lessons learned from our dog! he’s happy chasing his ball, or chewing on one of his many bones, or just rolling in the snow! He gets a big run everyday, and sometimes runs with me, but he’s just as happy in his yard! and he loves the snow! Hand-drawn & hand-lettered map, in ink & watercolours, our backyard. He’s such a great fella, full of life and always makes us laugh, he certainly can teach you to embrace life fully! I had a lot of fun with this map! and illustrating his busy day! no need to explain the yellow snow!
This map covers the Swiss half of Lake Geneva or Lac Lèman. It stretches from the city of Geneva in the west, with the Headquarters of the UN and Red Cross and the amazing Hadron Collider, buried underground at CERN. At the eastern end of the lake is Montreux with its music festival and statue of Freddie Mercury and the beautiful, lakeside Chateau de Chillon. In the centre of the lake is Lausanne, home to the Olympics and the Chateau de Vufflens. This clip is part of a much larger map of the whole of Switzerland and is a unique combination of painting and sculpture, with all the details hand carved from balsa wood and painted with acrylic.
