susan asked a good question in the comments on the last post HERE and i thought i’d answer it here for everyone.
Now that you are doing so much sketching, how do you fit that into your travel journals? Do you make them in a way that allows you to sketch right into the journal or are you sketching on loose sheets and then attaching them later, etc.? Can you elaborate for me please?
sometimes i sketched “live” into this book. like in the photo above, i just drew what was in front of me. everything else was done from photos that i had taken early in the day. i had my little macbook air with me so i uploaded my photos each night and then drew from those photos. in the last post i had some loose pages i took with me in my bag, sketched on them, then taped them in when i got home. in addition to this larger travel journal, i also took a pocket sized moleskine. i’ll share all the sketches from that soon. some, but not all, of those i shared HERE on my instagram as i was doing them.
still poking around. grateful to have these days all stacked up ahead of me and no school year to plan. unlike several teacher friends who are already back in their classrooms. but i do have more travels to plan and you better believe i’m ON IT. making the most of this sabbatical to see more of the world.
how i loved those smoke signals on the last post. everyone in their summer worlds dreaming, planning, piddling, reading, painting, loafing traveling, living. it’s august and we’re all still here. faces turned towards the sun.
