This map was inspired not only by the movie, but I had stumbled on information that Susan's house was not a fictional place, but a real house here on Long Island. My husband and I took a ride and there it was, the only difference was there was an addition upstairs. I didn't put the addition in my sketch. I actually forgot it because it is in the middle of the roof, so my drawing of the house is mix of 1946 and 2017. It was awesome, all of those years seeing that scene in the movie and when we drove down the street, it was like going back in time. I couldn't nail down the Walkers apartment nor the Brooks Retirement home, so those are guesses on the map based on location information gleaned from watching the movie several times. Those are the two locations marked as "fictional."
Season's Greetings and Happy New Year!
Weehawken, NJ is a small town on the western shore of the Hudson River. Perched at the top of a cliff, it boasts a magnificent view of Manhattan, and is known for being the site of the famous duel between Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton. Its historic water tower, inspired by the Palazzo Vecchio in Florence, glows red and can be seen from New York City. Among its many grand Victorian homes, Weehawken's public library stands out for its beautiful restoration. People enjoy the waterfront for dining, recreation and relaxation. Weehawken also happens to be the place I call home.
I chose to share my favorite places. It is a superb region, often compared to Ireland hence its nickname of Little Ireland. For my part it makes me think of the landscapes of Brittany. Produced as part of the Nate Padavick course for Sketch Book Skool
L'Ile des Embiez is a small island in the South of France, in the Var (83) département.
It's a place I've often visited as a child and that I re-discovered in my mid 20s. This is one of my favourite places on earth, it features beautiful beaches, pine forests, an aquarium presenting local marine life and has it's own vineyards.
This map celebrates l'Ile des Embiez in pure analog medium: paper, ink and watercolour.
Nara, a city near Kyoto, is a perfect city for day-trip. As Japan's capital city during Nara Period, it contains many historical Buddhism temples (including Todaiji - world's largest wooden building). Deer wander freely around near Nara Park.
Tourists usually arrive at one of the railway stations (JR or Kintetsu), and then walk around the east part of the city to visit temples and deers. There are some Nara foods along the way.
