During my time at home during COVID-19 in 2020, I’ve spent a lot of time researching recipes, finding recipes for the ingredients I have in the house, and on Zoom or online meetings. This illustration is a fun expression of both for the Mapping This Moment theme.
This is a compilation of the different versions of myself since the quarantine started. Some days I'll be super productive while other days I can barely even get out of bed. It's been a strange couple of months but I know we're all doing what we can to get by.
One of the creepiest and also the most interesting bits of human history is the abandonment of man made objects and places when nature takes over. This map illustrates 4 of my favorite abandoned theme parks in 4 different European countries.
Taronga Zoo is an amazing place to explore and discover wildlife. I visited it last winter when I was on vacation in Sydney. Unfortunately, large fires happened at the same time. This piece is to commemorate the wild animals killed in the fire and hope that people do not despise the power of nature.
This place is special to me because it reminds me of my childhood. When my family moved out of state, my sister and I still remained close to our mutual best friend from our hometown in upstate NY. Though we didn’t see each other often, we could always count on spending one magical weekend together in the summer! Every summer my sister and I would spend a few weeks visiting our grandparents just south of Lake George, NY. Conveniently, our best friends’ grandparents had a cabin just north of Lake George. So naturally, Lake George became our spot! Martha’s Dandee Cream was always the drop off/ pick up spot, and from there it was a weekend filled with mini golf, theme parks, arcades, and kitsch statues (it was’t until years later that I realized not every area has these weird old theme park statues running rampant)! Now that we are adults and have cars of our own, our meeting spots have changed, but every once in awhile a drive through the village of Lake George is on the agenda and it’s retro charm never disappoints!
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!
