Sydney illustrator Marcela Restrepo joins us on the Guest Blog with an illustrated diary from her recent trip to Colombia!

We're very excited this week to welcome Sydney illustrator Marcela Restrepo to the Guest Blog!  Marcela's beautiful detailed work has featured here more than once before - you might remember my interview with Marcela late last year, and her beautiful 'Darlinghurst' illustration features in The Design Files Neighbourhood Calendar!  Marcela is now outrageously famous because her work popped up all over Sydney (and even on TV!) as part of the identity design for Sydney Festival in January this year!  So we really are extremely lucky to have her guest blogging with us all week!

This week Marcela takes us along on her recent trip back home to Colombia, sharing with us a local's view of Colombian culture and the beautiful landscape.  Marcela's posts are rich with beautiful photographs, amazing scenery and cityscapes, and endless sunny blue skies - AND she's whipped up some brand new illustrations just for us!  Do pop over each day to see what Marcela is up to - nothing like a daily dose of South American sunshine as we head into winter!

Marcela is represented commercially by the Jacky Winter Group.  She has a blog and online shop too!
