The process of doing a travel journal attaches me in a more physical way to what I see on my trip because the physical process of drawing involves more than simply looking. Its why I do a journal, it enhances my perception of what I might just pass by. That said, some of this journal was done on the jet, mostly the crosshatching, but some drawing as well. The Catrina here on the left I made up based on a variety of tourist papers. Many artists in Mexico make 3-d clay versions of these ladies and I'd love to take one home but they are extremely fragile and I didn't want to chance it. Catrinas are ladies of the night based on Jose Posada's prints, apparently they have to come back to do penance for their sins, but they certainly do that with panache!
