For UK-based illustrator and graphic designer
Darren Shaddick, fleeing the eternal rain in England
is the reason why he’s always seeking the chance
for a great escape.

While a simple bed, shower and WiFi are all
that does it for him on a holiday, he has had
his fair share of weird experiences from his
overseas trips.

I once stayed in a tiny
London Airbnb apartment
with serious plumbing
issues. The smell was
nothing short of putrid
and was very persistent.

Thankfully though, there’s a silver lining. These
strange and odd encounters have inspired him
and the art that he creates, like his tee design
for Li Seng Min.
