Graphic tour : Rhodes, Greece

There’s something fascinating about the graphic culture in Greece, maybe it’s because of their alphabet or maybe it’s just that some of the things you get to see are so old, yet so modern?
First thing first though, blue is no joke here, it actually feels like there’s a strong pressure to do things with at least a touch of blue. It turns out that the Greeks used to believe it protected them from the evil-eye, I guess that makes a good excuse.
The graphic mix gets even more interesting here in Rhodes since the island has been occupied by the Turks, the Crusaders  and the Italians before becoming Greek again. This makes the eponymous city of Rhodes a suprisingly rich place to visit…

Rhodes is the largest island of the Dodecanese and very close to the Turkish coast.
