Tumblr of the Week: Adventure Journal



Today's Tumblr of the Week hasn't updated in a while, but it has enough cool content on it to share anyway. It's the adventure journal of Kailey, who tried to combat her shoddy memory span by drawing the events of her life every day. I love that it's really just a diary detailing what she did on a daily basis sprinkled with illustrative doodles. Some days there's only a few lines about how she feels and one thing she did. Others go into longer detail about all her activities and what specific drinks or food she had, to the point where the text has to squish itself around the drawings.

It's endearing to read all the little details that she decided were important enough to draw down so that she could remember it years later, like drinking hot chocolate after getting yelled at by a bus driver.

If you're addicted to tumbling as well as doodling, follow Doodlers Anonymous on Tumblr for even more daily inspiration. You might even see yourself on there!

Illustration Around the World



I would love to walk a mile in Pablo ientile’s shoes-- which are probably quite worn by now considering he recently spent six months journeying through thirty cities in ten Asian countries. Pablo, who likes drawing as pablo bear when on the road, is traveling the world meeting and collaborating with artists on his brilliant comic book project. Each artist, uber-talented in their own right, will illustrate the parts of the comic that occur in their cities resulting in a first-person narrative with a crazy cool mashup of styles. Can’t wait to see the end result! Follow Pablo's journey online at illustrationaroundtheworld.com or mobile via his Instagram.

Wanderlust the Muse

I don't know if I envy Eric Olmstead more for his insane talent or his extensive travels. His work is so vivid in color and detail, so powerful in narrative, and so pop art and animated, I almost expected a few onomatopoeias: POW! CRRACK! WHAM! KER-SPLASH! From being drugged and robbed in Ecuador to finding himself in Sydney to backpacking in the Philippines, Eric's artwork brings you with, so you can imagine hiking the Inca trail alongside. For anyone bitten by the travel bug, you know that Wanderlust always calls. Eric Olmstead answered.

Portland Travelogue

I always romanticized about creating my own travelogue, but whenever I travel, I never get around to it. Perhaps when I'm away from home my curiousness of unseen places overtakes that internal desire. I guess that's why I turn to the web to live out this dream through someone else. Recently, Mike Rohde's Portland travelogue peaked my interest. At first I wasn't exactly clear why. But through the process of writing this very entry I realized that his travelogue was not filled with overly-stylized drawings or excessive details, just sprinkles of doodles across the pages that allowed my imagination to simmer with visuals of places I've never been.

Big in Japan

Robert Scholten takes us on a drawn journey through Japan. Flip through his sketchbook and it's as if you're riding along right beside him, in almost every form of transportation – "airplane, bus, car, train, ferry – you name it!"

Points of Interest

The summer of 2011 Nicole Lavelle road a bike made of bamboo from Alabama to San Francisco. Saying it was a gigantic accomplishment would be an understatement (at least by my terms). I am fascinated by her hand drawn typography and observations that came out of such an adventure.



She says that the work is compiled of words and ideas that were a collaboration between her and strangers that she met along the path through middle America. Every one of these hand drawn posters completely crush me in the best possible way. They are so direct, so honest, and are like a photographic snapshot of each moment on this journey.
