Nyhavn, Copenhagen

Nyhavn, Copenhagen. Urban sketch by Artmagenta.
Nyhavn, Copenhagen
The first thing that strikes you as a visitor at Nyhavn a sunny summer day is that there are so many people sitting outside the open air restaurants on the boardwalk along the Nyhavn canal. There are people of all ages who have chosen to bring their own food and drink and enjoy the sun of a picnic next to Nyhavn restaurants. This is something that is normal at any age and include not just young people. Restaurants serving take-away beer in plastic cups to those who sit on the quay.

Gamla Väster, Malmö
Finger sketching on iPad
MALMÖ. None of the houses are more than 200 hundred years old but the street has been there for 800 years.  The street has seen houses being built, torn down and new houses being built up again. Not to mention all the people who has lived on this street during these times.

That Malmö street has a lot of stories to tell.

Zapiekanka on plac Nowy

Zapiekanka is a sketch by artist and illustrator Artmagenta
Zapiekanka: I’d eat this everyday of my life, damn tasty!

 Zapiekanka is the Polish version of pizza.  It’s a long sliced half of a baked baguette, mushrooms and cheese on top with a very liberal dose of tomato ketchup. This is the traditional version but you can alternate the toppings with your own plus also add a sprinkling of fried onions or chives on top. Delicious.

Plac Nowy is a sketch by Artmagenta
Plac Nowy, Krakow

The best Zapiekanke you get at plac Nowy,  the hub of all the action in Kazimierz. On a summer evening it’s a great setting for a delicious snack!
