I am pretty darn excited that this time next week I’ll be on my way to Istanbul. I’m going for 4 days and can’t wait to take in all the beautiful mosaics, colours and of course, delicious food! And of course upon my return I hope to put together some new illustrations and map work . . . yay! To get me warmed up and in the mood for the trip I had a quick look at how the amazing city has inspired others.
