A groundbreaking Los Angeles digital painter and MacEvangelist, Trici Venola moved to Istanbul in 1999 and began drawing everything she saw. She has now created over 2000 drawings of this rapidly-changing city at the center of the world, authoring two books of drawings, Drawing On Istanbul and Drawing On Istanbul 2, both available on Amazon, as well as The Drawing On Istanbul Blog, popular with art historians, Byzantine scholars, students and those who just like a good read, with pictures. She learned the history of the places she was drawing, and local people showed her things few get to see.
Roaming through streets of fabulous old architecture in the harbor district and then through the Spice Bazaar and Tahtakkale, the hardware and Han districts, up to Suleymaniye. Much of the architecture is Ottoman Splendor at its zenith, built on Byzantine Roman ruins and full of interesting little corners and details. Think Agatha Christie, turn-of-the-last-century extravagance with present-day porters, plus those shops that seem to go on forever.
