After much deliberation, my boyfriend and I have finally decided where to go for Christmas and new years. We’ll make our way through northern Switzerland (the German part) and also see a little bit of France (Love!) – I promise to post the full route here, complete with illustrations and everything.
Planning for holidays always reminds me of the amazing time we had on past trips. I love looking at the pictures we took and the drawings I made. They bring back beautiful memories and the promise that the next trip will be even better.
We were in Venice a couple of months ago. This is what we saw:
And here are two new little illustration pieces I scribbled over my favorite turquoise-colored paper:
I have been in love with Venetian masks before and I’m currently planning on a big Venice-inspired piece to give as a present for a very dear friend. I’m not really sure how to do it justice though. Venice is too wonderful and intimidating. It doesn’t even look real, it’s so perfect. I won’t try to reproduce that kind of beauty. It’s an impossible task. What I’ll do instead is use it as inspiration to draw something pretty that will make my friend smile. That will make me very happy and I guess Venice won’t mind.
What an amazing place. Have you been there? I’ll definitely be back and highly recommend it.
Lots of love from Lisbon, wishing you a beautiful weekend. ♥
