As a Canadian expat living in Cairo, Egypt, I wanted to give viewers a taste of what I think makes this wonderfully chaotic metropolis so unique. I have included both the notable historic landmarks and the obscure, culturally distinctive elements which give Cairo so much character.
Lisbon is my new favourite city. Its beautiful architecture tells a story of a southern European city and port evolving over centuries, including St George's Castle and the Torre de Belem as well as the ancient Monastry of Jeronimo. The salty breeze of the sea blows in from the south and provides some much needed relief from the summer heat. Built on seven hills, Lisbon has a vibrant bar and cafe culture that rivals Paris and indeed many French people have relocated to Lisbon and its easy to see why when you have the sun, city and sand on your doorstep.
My favourite thing in my Cityscape of Tokyo is the fish I drew to represent the famous Tsukji Fish Market, which I have visited on one of my many trips to Japan. In my drawings, a fish can be the size of a skyscraper. It's all about what's important for me. I adore Japan and love drawing the decorative, arched roofs, such as the Mejii Jingu Shrine as much as the glass and concrete modernist temples of the commerce. I like to see the modernity of the Harajuku girls as much as the traditional dress and culture of the kimono clad Geishas. The old and new in a natural and man made world, compete for space in the super-size city that is Tokyo and help to contribute to its unique and charismatic culture.
