One Day in Melbourne

"Nothing is more damaging to the adventurous spirit within a man than a secure future. The very basic core of a man's living spirit is his passion for adventure. The joy of life comes from our encounters with new experiences and hence there is no greater joy than to have an endlessly changing horizon, for each day to have a new and different sun.”

We Heart Melbourne is something that every proud Melburnian should have in their home.Jimmy Gleeson was commissioned by the good folk at Urban Attitude to illustrate a souvenir collection of homewares for their iconic Melbourne stores.

Showcasing Melbourne’s cityscape through a series of simplified geometric shapes, the illustration is based on a sprawling map of the north and south sides of the Yarra River.
