Wanderlust and savings time

Similar to that jolly old notion that “those who can’t do coach” – I feel like we should add into the cultural vocab:

“Those who have not yet saved enough money to travel abroad again soon shall sketch”

Maybe it will catch on one day? Maybe not…

In the meantime – I’ve been hit by that ‘year and a half without having been overseas’ travel bug that I know all too well. So to ease the pain while I start to save away my money, I started going through some old travel images to draw from. In the process I found a few old favourites from my last trip to Europe.

These little pastel digital artworks were done for fabric prints in uni – from photos I took when backpacking. The triple building illustration (from a photo taken on this amazing evening in Berlin on Museum Island) was one of the first digital illustrations that I ever did. It was printed onto this luscious cotton silk and one day grew into a top.

The repeat pattern was an illustration from a whole heap of photos taken between London – Paris – Amsterdam and Berlin. Unlike its friend, he one day turned into a cute pair of bikinis.

Where are you guys planning to travel to next? And please tell me I’m not the only sad person drawing from their old fav travel snaps… πŸ˜‰
