City of Extremes

City of extremes (small).png

There's a column in the travel section of The Age newspaper where different people (scientists, athletes, writers, architects, etc.) list five places that made them. In that same vein, this is a follow-up to my Durham illustration. Here is Melbourne, my city of extremes, where I have experienced some of the best and worst moments in my life thus far. This illustration features the beautiful stained glass pattern by the late Leonard French, that spans the ceiling of the Great Hall in the National Gallery of Victoria.
