The Ghibli Studio has produced many of my favorite movies. In Mitaka, Japan, their museum brings to life the many wonders of their imagined worlds, not only in sculpture and pictures but also in the architecture that houses it all. I illustrated this map of the museum in a sketch and watercolor style meant to resemble the art of Ghibli. I chose certain features to emphasize from the memory of my visit there, many years ago.
"Jamsil" is a neighborhood in Seoul, South Korea, where I spent my whole elementary school years. The map is full of memories and reflections of childhood and school life to look back on. Please feel free to color in the map like a coloring book!
Another of my favourite places in Hong Kong. One of the city's quirkiest modes of transport is the Central - Mid-levels Escalator, built as a connection between the financial district and residential areas further up the hillside.
From its starting point on Queen's Road Central, the escalator snakes its way through one of Hong Kong's oldest and most interesting neighbourhoods - an eclectic blend of wet markets, colonial structures, hip restaurants, watering holes and art galleries. Like the city as a whole, it keeps a precarious balance between age-old tradition and unashamed modernity.
Easily one of the best parts of my hometown. When friends come to visit, this is where I take them to see a greener and lesser-known side of Hong Kong. The tourist magnets are Ocean Park, Repulse Bay and Stanley, but beyond these three places there is plenty more to explore. The avid hiker will love the island's mountainous interior, and sun-worshippers will delight in its string of beautiful beaches. For the culture vulture, there's a bustling fish market, colonial architecture and the annual dragon boat races in Stanley and Aberdeen.
One of my favourite parts of Hong Kong was the skyline. The angular shapes of the skyscrapers contrast against the rolling mountains behind, and the clouds pile up behind the peak. This is a condensed version of the skyline as seen from a boat ride around the harbour, with all my favourite bits in it!
This is Po Fook Ancestral Halls / memorial halls (also sometimes known as Bao Fook). It is a large, modern-ish burial ground near the 10,000 Buddha temple in the Sha Tin area of Hong Kong. Confused tourists often end up here whilst trying to find the 10,000 Buddha temple, which has a small entrance a little bit further down the road. However this place is worth a look anyway, with a big jumble of red and white traditional style buildings which pile up on several layers around a big pagoda in the middle. There is also some really peaceful gardens by the base of the temple full of turtles lazing in the sun.
