The capital has two sides, Buda and Pest, divided by the Danube, representing two different characters of the city. Suburban Buda and its historic castle district offer medieval streets and houses, museums, caves and Roman ruins. I illustrated the front of the Swiss Army Knife with the famous Castle Hill Funicular, first opened in 1870. The dynamic Pest side boasts the largest parliament building in Europe, riverside promenades, flea markets, bookstores, antique stores and café houses. On the back of the Knife I illustrated the Chain Bridge, The Danube, The Gresham Palace and the St. Stephan Basilica.

Budapest - Hungary
Describe why you have chosen this place as a visual? What story does your design tell?
I love Budapest for all the right reasons: architecture (especially art nouveau), the views from the bridges, old trolleybuses and Turkish baths.
