I have one week to go before I go home for a dear friend’s wedding and spend some much-needed time with family. So why am I panicking about not having posted regularly the past few weeks instead of packing? Yesterday I caught up on my blog reading of Haus Maus, where Holly Becker muses on the absence of European bloggers during the summer. Noting that Europeans go on holiday from the online world as well as work world. And I was like, Harika! (Turkish for wonderful, marvelous or extraordinary). I can take a couple weeks off! I’m European now!
Here are a few illustrations I did a couple years ago that are part of a set of watercolors on Istanbul and which I rotate on my business cards. The rest of the set can be seen on my Flickr page. (The Light Garden, the linden illustration above made me think of you.) Hope you all enjoy a cool minty tea drink like the one below, and relax this summer! See you again in August.
