Sketchbook 12.5.12

We’re traveling home from New Zealand today! Actually it’s taking us two days to get home, but because of the time zone changes we’ll squeeze it all into one day. I still don’t quite understand how that works, but I’m pretty sure it’s the same as time travel. Awesome.

The shop will reopen tomorrow (or possibly late tonight if I’m not too jet lagged to remember how the internet works). In the mean time, here are a few of my latest sketchbook pages.

    Can’t wait to hear about your Trip! I always have the best intentions to draw, write or something while on vacation but never really commit to it. I like the circle one the best.

      We spent most of our time in remote areas of the south island, so the only Hobbit hype we saw was on Air New Zealand. Their flight safety video was even Hobbit themed! Now to sort through the 50 GB of photos I took… ;)

    Hi Amanda! Any way you can share your process from getting your designs from your sketchbook into Illustrator? I’m practicing my hand lettering and would like to add some color but it always looks so wrong once I get it on my computer! Thanks so much :)

I love your comments more than I love chocolate (almost).
