Travel Sketchbook New York and Virginia May 2011

Over the last couple of years I've tried to keep sketchbooks whenever I travel and more often than not I'm too lazy or having too much fun to be bleedin' drawing pictures, so more often than not I come home with a few half assed doodles and they end up in a drawer. Other times I get into the rhythm of it and can't stop.

I'm just back from a really fun holiday in Americky visiting my sister, brother-n-law and brand new niece baby Maeve in Virginia as well as a week in New York where I couldn't stop drawing the amazing characaters wandering the around the area we stayed in.

Here's a selection from various sketchbooks and scraps of paper I made during the trip.

I enjoyed it so much this time that now I just want to hop on a train around Europe and draw for months like Steve Doogan did though!

Great stuff, as usual.

Hello,
I came across your website and found it alluring and exciting. I am a big fan of travel. If you could e-mail me back at MGates@elliman.com, that would be great. I just had a couple questions.
I look forward to hearing back from you soon! Have a great day.
