Coloring Book Interview Series, #2: Cherry Wynn-Williams

It all started with a drawing of a typewriter. I first laid eyes on the work of Cherry Wynn-Williams when I opened up our Coloring Book Volume 3 and gasped at a funny little old-fashioned typewriter. She is an illustrator and world traveller, which I would have guessed even before I reached out to her because her portfolio is full of foreign street-sides, glimpses of exotic markets, and peeks into little alleys that exist somewhere across the world.

Tumblr of the Week: Snippets




This is exactly the kind of thing I regret not doing for every trip I've been on. When I'm visiting other countries, everything seems like it's unforgettable, and that I'll remember it years to come. But beyond the most "noteworthy" attractions there are countless sights and moments that were so subtle, that after a few years most have slipped my mind like sand through my fingers.

Emma Sylvie's illustrated travel log puts so much emphasis on the small details that you wouldn't really know about if you didn't go there yourself, I almost feel as if I'm experiencing it with her. What stands out for me beyond the touristy things is the moments of people-watching. The best part is the way her drawings are narrated, so I can know what she felt in that moment and see the world exactly through her point of view.

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.

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!"
