Delta Hotel I was staying at on Hastings and Seymour Street
I thought I would like to make a little interesting travelling spread that gives you an idea how I got around to Vancouver Island and Vancouver. The hotel is in a great convenience location in downtown for everything you would like to see in Vancouver. And, my room is on the 20th floor with an amazing view!
Best view it in large for the details.
This is based on the lyrics of a song (which are written on the glacier) by Death Cab for Cutie. Every time I hear this song I have this picture in my mind and it was great to finally draw it. I had a great time painting/drawing this one and I love how it turned out. Sorry if your country is horribly deformed, I wanted the continents to be recognizable without spending an eternity worrying about detail. The stars were made by sprinkling a bit of salt on the black watercolor while still wet.
In case you can’t read my writing here are the lyrics:
“I wish the world was flat like the old days, so I could travel just by folding a map… there’d be no distance that could hold us back.”
