Inspiration Abroad

I recently traveled to Southeast Asia and visited several cities in Cambodia and Thailand. During my journey I used my time in transit, which included several buses, many cabs or tuk tuks and a total number of ten planes, to fill my sketchbook.  I like creating fictional characters based loosely from my observations. I invent their mysterious past or detailed drama in my mind and then draw a moment or scene from their story and write only a suggestive title.  I also enjoy recording my surroundings, mostly snippets of banal places, often overlooked. I collect their simplified structures and forms or zoom in on specific details. In drawing while traveling I attempt to capture the quirks and cultural findings of my adventures to take home with me.
