Vacation Vacation Vacation



Oh my, our book is going from Christina to Irina and I am so excited with its journey. Everyone has been amazing!

I will be going on vacation guys: Ireland, England and Italy!!!!! My life has been immensely busy and I have been daydreaming a lot in my free time. I am hoping to do lots of sketching while traveling.

I will be gone until May for a much deserved time off. Meanwhile, I wanted to share some amazing urban sketchers who have so deeply influenced me to start my own sketching journey:



Tommy Kane is by far the one who pushed me into sketching. He has this kind of self-deprecating humor of someone who doesn't take himself too seriously, all while being insanely talented. He also makes the most amazing videos of him sketching onsite. You must check the video of him drawing in Cambodia. It is amazing and can be found here.


Then, there is Lapin, who creates these insanely detailed sketches on old notebooks WITH LINES. I know, as a beginner I am always looking for the best stuff as though that will make my sketches look better... *sigh*


Then there is the Urban Sketchers troop. They are ALL over the WORLD. Amazing artists from each corner of the globe. One of my favorites are the Urban Sketchers from Portugal. I love the modern with the baroque architecture.

So that's all folks. I will be back hopefully with lot's of adventures to share.

Women's Circle Traveling Journal- Update







I have not updated anyone on the progress of our traveling journal.

I am happy to say that our journal has arrived at the hands of our 6th artist Ophelia, who makes the most beautiful journal pages.

I posted some photos above of what the amazing women in this circle have come up with (each photo linked to the blog of its rightful owner) and I have to say I feel so utterly in awe that this is even happening.
