Exploring Beautiful Marrakech

Exploring the beautiful sights of Marrakech was a dream full of pattern and colour! I’ve been wanting to visit this vibrant city for a while now, and it definitely lived up to my expectations.

Jardín Majorelle is a must see - with an array of colourful paintwork and every single type of cactus imaginable - it is an instagrammer’s dream and will keep me busy drawing plants for a long time to come!

This beautiful garden was restored to its former glory by Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Berge, and it was an absolute delight to see the museum full of his most famous creations. The ones I loved most (being the illustrator that I am) were the paper works - the ‘Love’ posters that are gifted to clients every year. The 80’s ones were especially awesome.

Besides the beautiful gardens - the streets and souks are some of the most interesting places to explore - with beautiful tiled doorways, windows, and colourful sights everywhere you could see. I tried to capture a few glimpses of it all (below) but if you can, I very much recommend visiting this beautiful city.
