I drew these two spreads in a store-bought sketchbook, the one with the pebbly black cover.

Since I wasn't very happy with the paper, I purchased some Fabriano paper from a local art store and will make my own hand bound sketchbook to create the illustrated memories.
As luck would have it, I found an old TEDTalks program from 2002 of one of my favourite illustrators, David Macaulay who wrote and illustrated All Roads lead to Rome Antics. I'm sure you will enjoy his process and birds-eye-view of the city.
Although Rome is fascinating, I must admit, if I were Italian I would be a Tuscan woman.
