Recently I shared with you my project of illustrations featuring our travel destinations and you loved it. Today we continue this Travel Art Project with exploration series.
Travel Art Project: exploration series
First, I’d like to thank you
Before we begin, I would like to thank you for supporting my travel art project. I was telling you that this illustration project was born as a natural evolution of the fusion of my all passions: travel, art and Plushy. And of course, blogging.
1. Exploring Paris, France
It’s without saying that Paris holds a special place in my heart. It’s the city I’ve dreamed of living in when I was little. Paris is the city who adopted me almost 5 years ago. And also, it’s everyone’s favourite destination, perfect for cultural discoveries, food lovers, architecture lovers, and so on.
Paris was filled with wonders waiting for me to explore. When I first arrived, during the week I’d go to school (at Supélec), and during the weekend, with friends and colleagues, we’d leave for Paris early in the morning, to return with the last night train.
This illustration marks my arrival in Paris.
2. Exploring London, UK
When I moved to France I felt that all possibilities were suddenly available for me, all explorations were possible and the sky was the limit.
From Paris I could easily – and cheaply – reach other big European cities that I’d only dreamed of visiting. Amsterdam was a train ride away, Brussels and Brugge were reachable by car, and for London we had many affordable options.
I remember when I first came to London we (a bunch of friends) stayed in a dorm and split accommodation costs and beds.
We were lucky to have sunny weather, we enjoyed walking around. We even took the double-decker and I’ll never forget that sense of wonder I felt when I could see all the attractions from the bus’ second floor.
I drew this illustration many years later since our visit to London, but I was able to catch that feel on my characters’ expression.
3. Exploring Inle Lake, Myanmar
Lake Inle in Myanmar is one of the most original lakes I’ve visited so far. People are living on the lake, in homes on stilts. These people are called the Intha.
Their occupation is gardening on their floating gardens where they grow tomatoes, radish and all sorts of hydrophilic plants. Others go fishing in the morning.
The fishers have incredible balance and they are able to fish with a net while standing on their boat and rowing with a leg.
This illustration depicts almost everything we saw during the boat tour on Lake Inle in Myanmar.
