"This place is special to me because after my graduation from University where I studied foreign languages, I had the opportunity to live in Bordeaux for almost a year. There I met very kind people and a beautiful culture. These are the places that marked my experience, that I showed my family when they visited meand that will last forever in my mind. I would have added more but the space i didn't have more space! :) This watercolor map is my first one I hope you like it and I hope to do more maps!"
This place is special to me because it’s charm and delicious food stole my heart. One of the first things I saw in Charleston was a happy family of dolphins swimming in the harbor, which is something I had never seen before. New experiences like the wildlife made me feel connected to this small city. As we looked over the menu at Fleet Landing I saw a heron outside who was also looking for its dinner. I wanted to make this map highlighting the food we had in Charleston because of the people behind the food who cared about what they cooked and the experience they provided. The restaurants and landmarks I illustrated are just some of the many great places Charleston has to offer.
This place is special to me because I live in Amsterdam Eastside, which is the most amazing colourful neighbourhood. With colourful I mean there are people of so many cultures living here, it's wonderful. And the last couple of years many students have come to live here too, which means it's the most lively area you can possibly imagine!! You can get food and foodstuffs from all over the world and cafes and restaurants everywhere....see for yourself....
This place is special to me because... growing up I used to love eating at Milk Bars. These diners were like a 🕑 time-machine for me. They offered a rare insight into the everyday life under Communist regime. Luckily, some of them are still open and operating. Have a look at the map, pick a place and go!
This is a very special place to me because when I lived in Paris as an au pair I was so charmed by the city’s flair that I could just walk around aimlessly while gathering impressions. I remember stopping by each and every patisserie, admiring the window displays of the most elaborate cakes and tartes in delicious colours. I could only imagine how they tasted (they were expensive). Many years have gone by since then! My map features some of the finest and most famous addresses of patisseries one can find in Paris.
You plan to visit Vietnam but don’t know where to go first? You stay in Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) for a short time and there are too much places to go? Let’s me take you to the central districts of Saigon, where includes almost every famous attractions of the City.
Saigon is the old name of Ho Chi Minh City, the biggest city of Vietnam. However, the local citizens there prefer calling this city as "Saigon" as it sounds more friendly. If you don't want to walk, the city cyclo tours take you around the central districts of the city. You can admire the modern city with lots of historical buildings. You can enjoy different types of local cuisine in the markets. Vietnamese coffee and Pho (beef noodle) are always the signatures. And also, as called as a "Never-sleep city", you can take part in the beer parties with your friends at the Western-walking street at night. The local beer tastes fantastic and cheap!!
Just go and enjoy your awesome trip there!
This place is special to me because I studied here at the Savannah College of Art and Deign for four amazing years. You can bet I became acquainted with every coffee shop that stayed open past 6pm! From the hangout across the Illustration building to the coffee shop that has s'mores, wine, AND tacos, these are my favorite places to get a caffeine fix!
Edinburgh is a special place to me because it's my second "home". I've been living in Edinburgh for 12 years and 3 months now and so many sweet and sour memories happened in this beautiful city and shockingly I have never illustrated anything about Edinburgh before. That's why I decided to illustration this beautiful city as my second entry for this competition. I use to working in one of restaurant in this map for 4 and half years as a professional chef before I turned my career into professional illustrator. My first Children's menu commission job was commissioned by one of the most delicious burger restaurant in Edinburgh and it's also in this map. All the locations I decided to illustrated in this map are my favourite location in Edinburgh. Maybe one day when you have chance to visit Edinburgh you can use my map as guide!
I'm not from Orlando, but I like to say that our little family is "from" Orlando since my husband and I both went to school here, met, got married, and had two babies in the City Beautiful. During our time as Orlando residents, we loved to get takeout from a restaurant or grab a drink + dessert from a cafe or pick up fixin's for a perfect picnic and sit together under the warm sunshine in one of Orlando's many green parks. We also have a thing for books and our idea of a lovely day is lounging on a picnic blanket with good reads and great eats.
I lived in Portugal 20 years ago and Lisbon was a city of which I have many fun memories. I'm FINALLY getting back for a visit in a few months, so I'm trying to remember the old (like CENTURIES old) faves, as well as check out all the new things which have appeared in recent years (hello vegan sushi and drag queen cooking classes!). Staying in a 5th floor walkup with no elevator, so I'll be sure to work up an appetite for eleventy million pastéis de nata.
Honestly a trip to Astoria is worth it for Frite & Scoop alone, but here are a few more fun stops, since they don't let you go up to the Goonies house anymore!! If you go the right time of year, the sea lions will be waiting for you, just listen for their barking and meander down the Astoria Riverwalk til you find a couple hundred of them in a pile!
This place is special to me because of the time I lived there. Washington DC is known to the rest of the nation for politics, but for the locals, the upmost importance is given to happy hour and BRUNCH! Saturday and Sunday brunches happen all over the city and I wanted to share some of my favorites along with the dish they are best known for. Bon appetit!
This place is special to me because the beaches in the San Francisco Bay Area are extremely beautiful and so easy to reach by foot or bike or car or bus! And, the coffee is amazing! I take hikes at one of these places on a weekly basis. I recommend them all!
This place is special to me because I used to live in Hamburg as an art student and St Pauli is the area where we used to hang out (and still do when I visit). I am particularly fond of the so called curtain pubs (Gardinenkneipen). Their windows are usually obscured by nicotine stained doilies, hence their name, they are ruled by grumpy chain smoking barmaids (but with a heart of gold) and frequented by a mix of colorful characters from the local red light millieu who drunkenly play melancholic music on the jukebox whilst telling the barmaid their woes, or might have a little dance to the Macarena. The map shows my favorites curtain pubs, and a couple of places to have a cheap (but good) snack inbetween to soak up all the Astra and Korn. Top insider tips are: Discreetly (=make sure the grumpy barmaid doesn’t notice) ring the landline of the Nordlicht whilst sitting at its' bar and make sure you don’t tipsily ring any bells mounted over bartops, as this means you are volunteering to buy everyone in the establishment a drink! When you find yourself sitting at the bar of the Lehmitz, the bar that NEVER closes, at 10am trying to solve the mystery of when and how on earth they clean the place, it’s probably time to go home….
