The Concept Watercolor sketches from around the globe.
“I’ve been sketching for about two and a half years, and publishing them on my blog for about a year. A lot of people say they can see the soul of a place through a sketch. It’s my interpretation. And it’s changed the way I travel; it’s slowed me down. I do the sketches on location and they take around two to three hours. I will sit on a sidewalk if I have to; hopefully there’s a cafe nearby. And it’s opened up encounters with people. In Southeast Asia, kids would come up and watch me. I would give them a piece of paper and they’d start sketching with me. And so that was a really cool way to see our different perspectives on the same scene.”
