As an illustrator, every project holds a profound significance, but there's an enchanting allure in immortalising personal memories through art. Recently, I had the honour of crafting a personalised map of Gothenburg, weaving together treasured locations into a heartfelt gift.

Among the notable spots depicted on this map is Gardstens Centrum, nestled in the heart of Gothenburg. With its charming streets and memorable gatherings, Gardstens Centrum embodies a tapestry of cherished moments for the recipient.

Another highlight is Angered Town, a vibrant neighbourhood steeped in character and history. From bustling markets to cosy cafes, Angered Town evokes the recipient's youthful escapades and Gothenburg's vibrant spirit.

Langmosseskolan, with its iconic architecture and educational legacy, serves as a poignant reminder of formative years and enduring connections forged in this beautiful city.

Eriksberg, once an industrial hub, now stands as a testament to urban renewal and transformation, beckoning memories of exploration and discovery along its scenic waterfront.

No map of Gothenburg would be complete without Gothenberg Central Station, a bustling nexus connecting the city to endless adventures and familiar streets.

Tyska Bron, Stora Teatern, and Liseberg are additional landmarks featured, each holding a unique significance in the recipient's personal narrative. From Tyska Bron's historic charm to the grandeur of Stora Teatern and the joyous memories of Liseberg amusement park, these locations serve as enduring symbols of the recipient's life journey.

Crafting this personalised map transcended mere illustration; it was about encapsulating the essence of Gothenburg through the recipient's eyes. As I sketched each detail, I felt a surge of nostalgia and wonder, knowing that this map would become a cherished keepsake, preserving the recipient's fondest memories for years to come.
