A capital do Brasil, inaugurada em 21 de abril de 1960, destaca-se por sua arquitetura moderna e é considerada Patrimônio Cultural da Humanidade, pela UNESCO. Os principais monumentos e edifícios governamentais foram projetados pelo arquiteto Oscar Niemeyer, e o plano urbanístico pelo arquiteto Lúcio Costa. Muito além da movimentação política, Brasília é uma cidade dinâmica, bonita e com gente legal, que adora viver nela. Essa ilustração é uma pequena homenagem à cidade onde nasci e cresci e da qual gosto muito, apesar da enorme dificuldade de me locomover por ela sem carro.
The capital of Brazil, inaugurated on April 21, 1960, stands out for its modern architecture and is considered a World Cultural Heritage Site by UNESCO. The main monuments and government buildings were designed by the architect Oscar Niemeyer, and the urban plan by the architect Lúcio Costa. Despite the politics, Brasilia is a beautiful and dynamic city with cool people who love living in it. This illustration is a small tribute to the city where I was born and raised. Although it is inconvenient not being able to get around easily without a car, I love Brasilia!
I spent three and half years of living in Minneapolis before I moved to New York, and I still have a soft spot for this unique Midwest city. So I created this illustrated map of local art & fun spots of Minneapolis. It reminds me of the good old days of hanging out at my favorite spots in the city. Be sure to visit in the summer!
Sometimes you have to leave a place to truly appreciate its unique qualities. It was not until living abroad I started to really see the most fantastic features of my hometown Stockholm, most of which I took for granted when living there. When making my first map ever this was my obvious choice! Being a former archaeologist I wish I could have squeezed in sooo much more! Maybe there will be another one!
Tenerife is so much more than just beaches! Nature is absolutely stunning, the great volcano Teide very impressive and I love spotting animals all around the island.
We recently went to Tenerife for the second time and loved exploring the island!
Chuang Yen Monastery is a Buddhist monastery in upstate New York. I became familiar with it by attending its annual summer camp since childhood.
Aside from the camp, many visitors frequent the monastery grounds to pray, sight-see, volunteer, and eat delicious vegetarian food! I've included a comic showing the course of a day in the monastery, from both the perspective of the monks and guests.
This is a place with a lot of heart, and I think of as a second home. I hope you can feel at home here as well!
