This intricate drawing showcases the Keelung's landmarks and busy harbor from a unique perspective. It took many months of visits and drawing time to complete. From the natural beauty of the surrounding mountains to the dense city center every aspect of Keelung is beautifully drawn. In the harbor a coastguard boat maneuvers while a large cruise ship is docked nearby. One of the city's ubiquitous black kites circles overhead. Onshore, people enjoy the harbor plaza, the seafood restaurants and the famous Miao Kou Night Market. On the hillsides various temples and the Zhupu Altar watch over the city while hidden in the trees nearby is a ruined historic mansion.
With its dramatic landscape and my love of port towns I’ve wanted to draw this city for quite a while. However the extreme linearity of the urban area meant it didn’t really work as a regular bird’s eye map. After I started making the sphere perspective drawings I realized Keelung would work really well in this style.
If Keelung is your home or it holds a special place in your heart then this drawing is for you! It also makes a great gift for anyone interested in Taiwanese cities.
