Yep, being a travel writer has its perks. Last year, I stayed 140 consecutive nights in hotels from Lisbon to St. Moritz to the Italian Riviera. And as an illustrator, nothing beats that kind of inspiration: the over-the-top suites, the quirky experiences, the kooky, eccentric characters—love it all. This new illustration captures the spirit. And what I imagine happens when birds fly south....and write about it. Plus, it couldn't be more appropriate to kickoff another insane journey, which starts today! Hand-drawn with graphite and watercolor, and below in graphite and ink wash. Buy the art print!
Last summer, I traveled and lived throughout Provence. Journeying by train from Lyon to Avignon to Saint-Paul de Vence, I had oodles of hours to soak up the landscape and daydream...about French cows painting the pastures. This is my newest illustration, made with graphite and watercolor. Detail below. BUY THE ART PRINT!
