Traveling through illustrations

Traveling through illustrations

Remember that time when traveling is possible? Here is my travel journal from June 2019. It was fun looking back on that time when traveling seems to have become a possibility for more and more people. But then you know how the story goes…

After June 2019, I created my travel journals digitally. This one was about Iceland from October 2019. This was published on They Draw and Travel

My last holiday trip abroad was in London in November 2019 which I journaled as a boarding pass and as a part of a small book project.

I continue working on illustrating my past travels and will be posting them in the coming days. I hope you’ll do the same too. Creating travel journals has a way to bring you back to those happy memories. 

The year that was!

The year that was!

The end of the year is normally the time for me to summarize my year’s travel. 2020 was not that year. Instead, I’m posting my December illustrated journal, including thankful thoughts for 2020. I honestly can’t say that I’m hopeful for 2021, that things will get back to normal, that we will take back our lives. However, new normal can be created as we have been doing so over the past months. One thing I would like to do in 2021 is to listen to music as in the old days, when music was not in the background but the main activity. I listen to music all the time. Even when there’s no music, I play songs in my head. But during the past years, listening to music became an addition while doing other things. Now I want to listen to music and just close my eyes…

How was your year 2020? What are your hopes for 2021? May 2021 be better that the year that was!
