Kapana is a small walkable district in the town of Plovdiv. Its history dates back to the 16th century, when it was the merchant and crafts center of Plovdiv. A few of its streets are actually named after the craftsmen that practiced there for centuries: Zhelezarska Str. (Blacksmith Str.), Zlatarska Str. (Goldsmith Str.), Abadjiyska Str. (Coat-Tailor Str.), Kozhuharska Str. (Fur-Tailor Str.). The name itself (Kapana) means “trap” or “labyrinth”. And it’s well-deserved too — one can easily get lost in its cobblestoned streets that always meet at peculiar angles. Having lost its liveliness since the mid-20th century (the streets being mostly packed with parked cars), in the past few years the neighborhood has been revived again, largely thanks to Plovdiv's nomination for the European Capital of Culture 2019. Today Kapana is the colorful heart of Plovdiv — a social place with an artistic spirit and unique atmosphere.

I visited Chiang Mai Thailand last December and I just instantly fall in love with this beautiful and relaxing city. I love the mountains, the trees, elephants, food and shopping! I use yellow as my main colour as the colour of yellow reminded me my favourite noodle soup from Chiang Mai: Khao soui (Curry noodle soup). I love illustrate map because it bring back the happy and beautiful memories if the subject is the country or city I've visited before or give me hope and expectation if the subject is the country I've never visited before.

A trip to ICON in Detroit this past July had me look a little deeper at its music history – particularly the soul music that arose in the 1960’s. These are just some of the badass women who's songs that still resonate today – as well as some of the places that gave birth to a vibrant music industry.

I had the opportunity to visit Detroit in July for the ICON10 Illustration conference. One of the events was a tour of many of the public art spots in the city, and many local artists/activists spoke at the conference. I was blown away by the amount of grassroots engagement in art and placemaking, helping transform the city in a positive way. This map includes the Instagram handles for many of the artists and institutions I had the pleasure of learning about. I hope you'll give them a follow and learn more.
