Their mission was to check the health of the world’s largest living ecosystem, thousands of multi-coloured coral reefs stretching over 2,000 km off the northeast coast which bring in billions of dollars a year in tourism. Some coral has been badly damaged and certain animal species, including dugong and large green turtles, are threatened.

The Costa Verde hotel. It is a fully outfitted two bedroom, Boeing 727 suite in Costa Rica.

Around The World With David Bou

“I am David, an illustrator from Lithuania. I want to introduce some of my pictures – traveling illustrations I made. In these pictures I show the mood of great life moments when we travel. Fairly simple postcard-type images of towns are revitalized by my digital watercolor technique. You can feel the wind, the sun, the rain — everything. I’m a bit known in my country but I’d really love to share my work with the rest of the world.”

Slanted Magazine #25 – Paris

Slanted25_Paris_05

Loved and hated, hated and loved—seemingly no other European nation has a similarly segmented relationship to their capital as the French. Everything starts in Paris and everything conspires here. The city is the undisputed center of gravity of the country—almighty and omnipresent. All power originates and disperses from the city; politics, economics and culture.
