Street=Art : Lille

Observational drawing by That Restless Platypus

This is one of the most characteristic building in Lille : The chamber of commerce and industry’s belfry. It’s next to the beautiful grand place.

Lille is one of my favorite cities in France.

Street=Art : Dunkirk

I went to Dunkirk in may 2016 so I spent some time on top of the belfry to draw this.

Vienna – an experimentation with watercolors

So, my last travel was to Vienna and it was absolutely amazing! This city is incredibly beautiful, I had the chance to meet an old friend I hadn’t seen in a very long time and I saw the sunset over Sissi’s castle while listening to an opera.

Definitely a good memory and one of my best travels.

Riga – So far from home, yet so familiar

Apparently I forgot to post my drawing from holidays 2016 when I was in Riga. So, let’s correct this mistake right now.

I went there to see two very good friends, one of them being the one I talked about in a previous post about a deer. The other one being one of my classmates from university with whom I have many good memories.

From this stay I actually only have one regret : the absence of snow despite the cold weather but it is such a great memory to look back to.

Prague and Franz Kafka’s castle

To go to Prague has been a dream of mine for quite some time. Fortunately the dream has now turned into memories.

Two of my favourite authors are born in Czechia : Kafka and Kundera.  And Kafka,  the one I have been obsessed about for years,  lived in Prague and still haunts the city today, but I might do a little post about him since he was my travel buddy during the trip. I promise I haven’t gone insane 😉

Anyway, Prague is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen but it is also one of the most densely populated with tourists, a piece of advice : wake up early to see the bridge and the castle when there isn’t to much crowd.

The castle is incredible, it is supposed to be where Kafka found his inspiration for the novel “the castle”. Walking in his footsteps, remembering the book, I can see how.

Soon I’ll be back in Spain for a few day so I thought that it might be time to put this one here.

It reminds me of a very good period last year when I had the chance to travel a bit in France and Spain and to see some of my best friends.

Luckily next month might be similar, which makes me very impatient. I’m often frustrated not being able to see my best friends more than once or twice each year but that also makes it more special when it happens.

So yeah, can’t wait!

A reminder from Paris

Here is a little reminder from a recent weekend I’ve spent in Paris with one of my best and oldest friends.

I found this view of the eiffel tower vey fitting since it’s taken from the Palais de Tokyo where we were the night before for a DJ set.

But mostly, to me, it would represent how influential he was, and still is. Being one of the triggers for my newly found outgoing personnality.  Making me face and confront at least some aspects of reality, and generally helping me better myself while I’m still as annoying as ever 😀

Obviously, I was just trying to illustrate a good moment and a nice view when I started it but we can always find new meanings to our creations right ?

Street=Art : Berlin

The last stop of my “summer vacations tour” just after one that I haven’t shown you yet.

Berlin is a cool city especially when the light is dim and the sun has left to let the moon shine. But this doesn’t means that there aren’t some interesting thing to see during the day.

Street=Art : Pau

During my succession of travel this summer I went to Pau, a city in the south west of France.

There I’ve spent some time with one of my best friends who owns a page about how she discovers the city day by day since she moved there.

You really should take a look : The city is beautiful and the blog is both interesting and very educational. Actually she wrote an article about the castle you see in my drawing

It is called Pau 365 and you can visit it right HERE

Be sure to give her a like!
