Pen, ink and stitching on Lokta Paper, which is a handmade artisan paper indigenous to Nepal. I was inspired to do this drawing based based on a memory of a concert I attended at The Wexner Center of the Arts in Columbus, Ohio. They brought in Tuva Throat singers from Mongolia. The sound they produce is very unique and memorable.
Located nearby Hong Kong, Guangzhou(also known as "Canton") is the third biggest city in China, but is much less known internationally compared to Beijing and Shanghai. Guangzhou was a major trade port throughout the Chinese history, leaving a legacy of architectures of both Western styles and traditional Chinese styles.
It's easy to visit Guangzhou's major attractions in one day, and metro is arguably the best way to do so. Currently, there are 10 lines of metro, one of which operates on a driver-less automated system. The metros are new, clean, bright and efficient.
Japan is a fascinating place. It has everything - islands, forests, mountains, volcanoes, rivers and lakes... This map explores just some of the geography of the country. Often the initial image 'Japan' conjures up is of a megacity like Tokyo, but we should not forget the beautiful landscape that covers over 2/3 of the country.
This is a map 'depicting' one of my favourite vacations ever! We spent 4 days & 3 nights aboard a Maine Windjammer, the Stephen Taber 1871. It was a dream come true, and far exceeded our expectations; to wake up in your cosy cabin and smell the wood fire from the cookstove, and the food...oh my...gourmet dining & fine wines on the seas! A small crew & group of travellers, what a wonderful time, we were the only Canadians aboard, but made ever so welcome by our fellow American travellers! No electronics, just the sea, scenery, sights & sounds, occasional boat races. A surprise night of kettledrum music & partying ashore, fishing villages visited, during the day! It was heart-breaking to have to leave. If you ever get the chance, I highly recommend this boat for a 3, 4 or 6 day cruise! not for the faint of heart, you really are stepping back in time! The vacation that "DNS- as Captain Noah said, "does not suck".
I was lucky enough to have a great friend, that won a weekend in NYC and took me with her, and this map is a 'flashback' to that great weekend! I could never thank her enough!! It was a first for both of us, and we crammed as much into those 3 days & 3 nights as humanly possible!! and I tried to put the 'high-lights' of that magical weekend into this map! We covered a lot of ground in 3 days, lots of walking...got the key sites in...lots of laughs & great memories made! I left the background white, because I thought the story was 'colourful' enough for such a colourful city! (and the feet featured at 30 Rockefeller & Battery Park...yeah, those were our selfies!)
