Grazia Publishes Daniel Ido’s Take on Auckland

From the smell of the sea to mountainous ranges, there is no secret Auckland is a unique city. Drawing inspiration from his hometown, US-based Grazia guest editor and artist Daniel Ido frames exactly what makes New Zealand special without leaving his lounge, and offers up his favourite experiences.

Ido drew from these experiences and the unique landscape of New Zealand to form the next instalment of Grazia’s ‘At Home City Guide’ series – a one-stop shoppable gazette designed so readers can capture a piece of a city from their living room.

“The illustration is a snapshot of what Auckland is like,” Ido explains to Grazia.

“Geographically Auckland is different. We’re in range of 53 dormant volcanic cones, one of the few cities that lie in between two major bodies of water, surrounded by bush and forest and we have hills as far as the eye can see. My inspiration is the sea, and the city, major parts in what make Auckland unique.”
