Love the sketches!
Thanks for your support!
what a talent to be able to make things come to life with just pen and paper!
Hi Olivia! Thanks for your support!
Enjoyed the movie trailer as well as your sketches! My newphew is studying art in Austin, TX. I look forward to “following” you on the road!
Thanks! Let’s bea positive!
Love your use of bold color and the easy fluidity of yuour sketches. Enjoyed my visit here tremendously.
Hi Elizabeth and thanks for your support! I hope you’ll follow the upcoming trip.
Awesome sketches! Love this kind of stuff — I’m very jealous of those who can draw like this!
Hi Michael! Thanks, hope to share more soon.
Great sketches! I especially love the bold colors and the minimalist detail in the ‘nyskyline’ drawing.
Hi! Thanks for your feedback! (as noted in a comment below though, the colors here are more contrasted and vivid than in the originals) Will be sharing more soon.
My son is an artist and your style bears some resemblance to his, except that he uses more surrealism. I love your work.
Thank you for visiting my blog and enjoying it! I will pay more visits here, so I can experience your journey.
Hi Olive, thanks for your feedback, I look forward to keeping in touch and sharing more stories soon.
You certainly were blessed with talent. Really enjoyed your sketches.
Hi and thank you for your very nice comment. Hope you’ll follow the upcoming trip.
Beautiful sketches. They all tell a story.
Thanks for sharing you adventures with us.
I will certainly be back for more.
Cheers for finding my blog. You rock!
Thanks! Will be on the road soon and sharing more. Cheers!
Thank you! Second road-trip coming up soon…
Beautiful drawings. Ethel
Hi Ethel, thank you! Hope you’ll stay tuned for the rest of the road.
impressive! Glad you followed my blog, because I’m so following you very closely from now on. Ok, I’m quitting my job this leap year day. and I’m sure i’ll be doing these stuffs (sketching and travelling). Great blog! Big fan you have here. Cheers.
Thanks! Great to meet you! Appreciate your comment and humor (or is the irony un-lost on me?) and happy to share these stories! Cheers.
Wonderful sketches. What a great way to remember a trip or a moment in time.
Thank you for your support. Hope to share more soon.
You are a VERY talented sketcher my friend. I’m so impressed by how real these are. The colors in the nyskyline sketch are so perfect – it couldn’t be any better. The ability to share your experiences with the world by sketching in this superior quality is amazing. I look forward to experiencing your upcoming trip through your eyes and creativity. Good luck and cheers!
Hi and thanks Cat Protectress! Wanted to respond quickly to be fair about the nyskyline: I photographed the drawings and then adjusted whites, etc: the colors are more contrasted here than they are on the originals – I suppose this would be how prints would look like though. But happy to hear you like this ‘picture’! Cheers!
Reblogged this on The Life and Times of Legs Magee and commented:
If I could draw the places I’ve been instead of merely commenting…
What a view…
What an interesting hat…
I would want it to look like this.
Go look for yourself. Amazing work.
…I now want to buy postcards and draw.
My stick figures would have great adventures.
Hi, thank you for the reblog – you rock!
your work seems to tell a story of thier own. Leads the mind to wonder what. I love that. Well done and keep drawing you have so much to say.
Hi Therese, thank you for your very nice comments! Will keep the suggestion in mind for Grand Rapids .
I absolutely love the colored-in cityscape. Do you sell prints?
Hi, thank you so much! I do not sell prints at this point. However, am considering a one-off ‘sale’ of prints as rewards for the upcoming Kickstarter campaign , which will be used to get funding for professional video editing / original soundtrack. More soon…
Awesome sketches! Thank you so much for your follow and I will do the same!
Great! Look forward to sharing more.
There is something so raw about these sketches! Love it.
Impressive. What a creative way to tell a fascinating travel. Feels like we were there ourselves. Thanks.
Thanks for your very nice comment. Hope we get to share more soon.
Love the sketches. I so envy you. My eyesight is waning; so my traveling is limited. Thanks for subscribing to my blog. I look forward to more sketches. Regards.
Thanks for your support! I hope to be posting more soon and happy to share. Best,
Can’t do more than matchstick men so well impressed with these. Good luck on your travels and thanks for following
Hello, thanks for your support. More road soon.
I think your drawing are attracted me…
i always keep a eye on every attractive pics and drawings
Shalom. Welcome to our blog anytime. Lovely sketches! WOW!
Hi Jeanne, love the spirit! Thank you!
Wow, you’re talented! I wish I could draw, haha thanks for checking out my blog by the way!
Hi and thanks! You can draw, doesn’t have to be pictures just have to grab a pen
I like those sketches a lot. It is a precious gift you got.
Hi, thanks a lot! More stories soon.
This is a confession. I can cut trees, split logs, cook, grow a garden, maybe a little folksy poetry. but when it comes to drawing? My drawings look like the ones I did in grade one. Total failure on that point. It is then a pleasure to come upon someone who show real talent with pen and paper. Thank you.
Thank you. But I wouldn’t want to trade knowing how to grow a garden for drawing. Perhaps you would be into wood design, or ‘natural compositions’?
Love the energy of your lines! They practically vibrate. Can’t wait to get on the road and do some of my own travel sketches. We’re going on the road for a couple of years starting in April… got any Toronto recommendations?
Thank you! Second trip coming up, hope to stay in touch. Toronto: university area, chinatown and ‘grungy’ district, some large shopping malls… don’t know if that helps? And I’ll be looking forward to hear from your trip!
Thanks! Yep, I’ll be blogging all the way, as usual.
Great! Will be checking it out.
I really love these!
great! I feel kinda jealous that you could hit the road and sketch. Hope you will make a portfolio and let me know. Best of luck to you.
Thanks. I’ll be sure to keep you posted, planning a second road trip so there will be more stories coming soon.
Soooooo fantastical! Be safe on your journeys…and know that every wee human spirit is also connected to you…travel teaches you just how huge and ‘magical’ the human spirit is once all those wee heart strings are pulled in to be knotted with your own!
Thank you! I’d love to hear more about your thoughts. Travel / staying open to new experiences often helps to lead to that realization.
Hi, thanks for your support!
These are great. I keep trying to be more sketchy in my initial drawings but, always end up correcting myself with one careful, neat line.
