I went to Italy! My grandmother is a world traveler, and I somewhat invited myself along with her, and my aunt and dad. We had such a great time! I won’t post any personal photos, but trust me when I say I took a lot.
Instead, enjoy my drawings from the trip. I wanted to keep some of my experiences with me. These are all unchanged scans from my now falling apart sketchbook. All done with a 12 pack of Prismacolor pencils.
At the Uffizi and Hercules from the Palazzo Medici:
An amazing window painting in Florence, after Mucha:
My grandmother, aunt and (only lightly in there) uncle waiting to go to church in Montorosso Al Mare:
The rooftop view in Rome:
Drawing at restaurants and outside of the Colosseo:
My Dad, reading a terrible spy novel in Montorosso Al Mare:
New friends in Positano, along with a statue on the stairs leading to the beach:
This… uh… the only way to explain this is to tell a short story of an Italian music video which was utterly incomprehensible. All we could get out of it was that Italian Bruce Lee was kung-fu fighting Italian Arwen in a beautiful forest somewhere… and also it was a romance. I just don’t know. It was begging to be drawn. Anyone know the song I’m talking about?
Me! On the train going to Pompeii:
I drew a lot of food, but this one is special because I also spilled that food on my page. Perfect.
