This place is special to me because Ohio is where I have been calling home for the last three years. People may call Ohio as ‘the middle of nowhere’ or ‘a state of cornfields’, but there are actually great places to visit and experience. As an art and nature lover, I have put together a map that would encourage people to come and visit Ohio to experience the beautiful art museums and many natural wonders. I would love people to see this map and think of Ohio as a destination for cultural explorers and embrace more art & nature every day.
My cousin Kirsten and I meet for breakfast about every three weeks. For years, we went to the same two or three places. About two years ago, we decided that we would try a new restaurant every time we went to breakfast. This map is a record of the restaurants we tried out in the past two years. The limiting factor (being Los Angeles) was traffic, so we mostly went places between our two houses in the west end of the San Fernando Valley.
This place is special to me because I grew up and experienced most of my life here. Chicago is an amazing city filled with delicious foods, beautiful art, and remarkable music from around the world. There is so much to do and see that even I find new things to experience every time I visit. One thing that sticks out to me is the beautiful street art fellow artists create. That is what I wanted to base my illustration on. The art painted on the walls.
Clinton Hill is a treelined Brooklyn neighborhood where artists, writers, makers, students and creatives have lived throughout history, and continue to make their marks today. Spaces for creating, thinking, and collaborating dot the map, creating an atmosphere that's ever-evolving against a backdrop of historic brick row houses and brownstones.
My map depicts the many cafes and community spaces that celebrate the arts, and even a few places that do both (like the women-run Relationships cafe and Playground Coffee Shop). There's imaginative spaces where you can sip coffee surrounded by modern art, places that imagine a more intentionally-designed food system, shops with vintage clothing and furniture, destinations for modern art and music, and even a few historic (maybe unofficial) arts landmarks. It's a special place that has fueled my creativity for years, and I hope you'll find some inspiration here, too.
When it comes to describing my special place, it would be Ottawa, Canada, because that is where my grandmother lives. Like the bear in this picture, my grandmother is where my home is. She brings lots of joy, love, and beauty to the family.
As my years of university passed by so fast, I wanted to honor some of my favourite places in Chapel Hill. I've laughed, cried, explored, pulled all-nighters, worked, and ate my way through this city, and am happy to be able to call it my home.
This place is special to me because I moved here blindly for an internship and now 2 years later, I have fallen in love with this amazingly little city. I didn't know what I was moving to - wheat? Cows? There's that if you drive out long enough, but turns out there's great food, great beer, and an amazing art community right outside my doorstep. It's been pleasant surprise every single day!
Ann Arbor, particularly downtown, is special to me for a variety of reasons. I've trained for jobs there, wandered the streets on outings with friends, attended concerts, had a memorable bad date in A2 (as some locals call it) and attend the annual Hash Bash festival, along with other art festivals that are always happening every season. There are many beautiful cities in Michigan, and in the fall the showcase of colors in the trees is something we always marvel at. From great food to good music, art and people, A2 has some amazing places to see and things to do!
This is one of my favorite places I vacationed in style with my dog. Carmel by the sea is super pet friendly and always beautiful. There are many places to walk, eat, hike, shop and explore. Your furry friend is even welcome to swim and run on the beach. It is priced on the high side but worth it! It's very relaxing and full of culture, too!
