What do Mount Everest, Banks, and the Eiffel Tower have in common?

I just returned from three weeks in Paris. I draw the Eiffel Tower every time I go to Paris.
Why the Effiel Tower, an over-done icon?
→  Why did George Mallory want to climb Mt. Everest?
→  Why did Willie Sutton rob banks?
→  Why do I draw the Eiffiel Tower?

So, enjoy Eiffel 2013. I will be posting drawings from my trip over the next few days.
