This autumn I created Christmas illustrations about Stockholm for a good local project www.walkstockholm.com. It's a private guide Ira Stomberg, who organises original tours in Stockholm in Swedish, Russian, English and Hebrew. Ira asked me to design the illustrations of the Christmas city and traditional Swedish "fika". Finally we printed the postcards.
All November and December she was presenting them to her visitors.
Traditional Swedish Christmas "fika": kannelbullar, lucia bullar, pepparkakor (gingerbread) ang glögg (mulled wine).
The oldest square in Stockholm - Stortorget, Gamla Stan
Kornhamnstorg - another square in Old Town
I always start from a chalk sketch, because chalk is easier to erase or edit.
