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.

Untold Stories

I'm a sucker for travel sketches. So I was pleasantly surprised when I found these delightful airport / plane interior sketches done by stupor. The thing I like most are the simple thin lines on the yellow-tinted notebook. It brings so much drama to the many untold stories of these nameless travelers.

8 Days in Paris

Some people take a camera to document their travels. My backpack, however, is filled with everything else but that - a sketchbook, a large pouch filled with micron pens, markers, glue sticks, white out, found pieces of paper, etc. I just came back from a week in Paris, a fantastic week of scootering around, (barely) speaking French, enjoying daily "café crèmes" and "pains au chocolat." Eight days in Paris and this is what I have to show for it.

Showcase #4: Draw Your Destination

So many of us sit idle everyday dreaming of our next travel to somewhere fantastical and new. I know I do, and this week's showcase will have you yearning for that next adventure even more. Imagine being given a passport to travel anywhere you like, real or just in your imagination. Now simply draw it for us all to see. The destination is open for you to define as you wish. It could be as nearby as your local street market or as distant as planet Venus.

Share your drawn destination with us and you could win the perfect accessory for your next escapade, the one-of-a-kind Field Journal Notebook by Tom Bihn (a $75 value). A useful tool for any artist on the go, it's essentially a compact, portable, weather-proof, zippered notebook for doodling, journaling or sketching. It's made with love right here in the U.S. of A and it is the culmination of countless hours of design.

We just got one of our very own and must admit, this really is perfect for any urban sketcher. Read on for the complete guidelines to Showcase #4 »

Be Creative. Get Noticed.

H&M got a hold of us last week and told us about their "Your Art Here" contest, and now we'd like to share it with you. It's a fun contest, with a NYC theme. I just moved to New York. It is a city that has so much to offer, incredible energy and inspiration all around. So the theme is perfect. And I urge you to enter.

Now for the rules: Do something with a New York City theme, in your artistic style. The H&M on Fifth Ave. will give you their store window to use as your blank canvas. They'll fly you out to the city so you can install it yourself. And there are other goodies involved. Get more of the details here.

Think about it. A huge blank canvas for the world to see. And you can doodle away on it to your heart's content. Do it! You have until Oct. 5 to submit your piece.

The Travel Sketchbook

The sketchbook has always been a really amazing way for me to capture a journey. Seeing the world through the eyes of a sketchbook really gives me a sense of an era, and when I look back at them, I really remember each scrap or pen mark from that trip. These are a peek into some of my travel sketchbooks in Cartagena, Colombia, and another one from The Puget Sound, off the Washington Coast. Both of these books really make me nostalgic for these particular places, because I studied the landscapes, painted the faces, and drew my way through them. They really made a dent in my memory because I will always have that connection with these lovely places which I highly recommend visiting and taking your sketchbook with you when you have a chance. Look inside the books »
