I watched our bouvier, Ferris from my upstairs, studio window last week, playing in the backyard, amusing himself & just thought it would make a great map! We can’t always travel afar, but we can appreciate where we are, and make the best of what we have, and I certainly saw him doing that! lessons learned from our dog! he’s happy chasing his ball, or chewing on one of his many bones, or just rolling in the snow! He gets a big run everyday, and sometimes runs with me, but he’s just as happy in his yard! and he loves the snow! Hand-drawn & hand-lettered map, in ink & watercolours, our backyard. He’s such a great fella, full of life and always makes us laugh, he certainly can teach you to embrace life fully! I had a lot of fun with this map! and illustrating his busy day! no need to explain the yellow snow!
This map highlights a few of my favorite destinations and animals of a recent trip to the Antarctic Peninsula. Stand on a tabular iceberg and be deceived at Deception Island. Can you name the three species of penguin shown? How many different types of whales can you find? These questions and many more can be answered by close inspection of the map of Antarctica!
And I don’t mean tropical! A favourite vacation area, I think we’ve visited here at least 18 times, and it’s always as wonderful as the first visit! If you love & appreciate nature, this us the place to go! Driving the Cabot Trail is a must, and I recommend doing it clockwise & counter-clockwise, the vistas are outstanding! I love exploring Cheticamp Island, and cycling through the cows, watching the cormorants, treking to the sea’s edge, and watching the tolling waves! There is lots of hiking, a beautiful National Park for camping, fresh air & salty seas! We had the once in a lifetime pleasure of being joined on an afternoon kayaking expedition by a pod of pilot whales!
Celtic music & mountins, it’s one of the most beautiful spots in Canada, if you like remote this is the spot & seafood & welcoming islanders, who could say no to that? If you want shopping malls and box stores however, this is not the place for you! this hand-drawn map is just a taste of the beauty & history that awaits you in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia🧜🏼♀️
My family and i discovered free secret playgrounds and petting zoos in the heart of Amsterdam, along with kid-friendly restaurants nearby. We also enjoyed exploring forest parks in and around the lovely city on bicycle.
As a Canadian expat living in Cairo, Egypt, I wanted to give viewers a taste of what I think makes this wonderfully chaotic metropolis so unique. I have included both the notable historic landmarks and the obscure, culturally distinctive elements which give Cairo so much character.
Lisbon is my new favourite city. Its beautiful architecture tells a story of a southern European city and port evolving over centuries, including St George's Castle and the Torre de Belem as well as the ancient Monastry of Jeronimo. The salty breeze of the sea blows in from the south and provides some much needed relief from the summer heat. Built on seven hills, Lisbon has a vibrant bar and cafe culture that rivals Paris and indeed many French people have relocated to Lisbon and its easy to see why when you have the sun, city and sand on your doorstep.
My favourite thing in my Cityscape of Tokyo is the fish I drew to represent the famous Tsukji Fish Market, which I have visited on one of my many trips to Japan. In my drawings, a fish can be the size of a skyscraper. It's all about what's important for me. I adore Japan and love drawing the decorative, arched roofs, such as the Mejii Jingu Shrine as much as the glass and concrete modernist temples of the commerce. I like to see the modernity of the Harajuku girls as much as the traditional dress and culture of the kimono clad Geishas. The old and new in a natural and man made world, compete for space in the super-size city that is Tokyo and help to contribute to its unique and charismatic culture.
