Travel Sketches

Below is a collection of some sketches that were drawn in a tiny sketchbook that I keep with me while traveling. All of the following sketches are drawn without reference, and with lots of boredom. I'll be editing this project as I travel (and subsequently sketch) more. Enjoy!
Above : Delirious, sleep deprived pen sketches sketched these during an overnight layover in Beijing on my way to Tokyo.
Above : A study of tree texture done in the early morning on a camping trip back in April. And I love drawing characters, so...
Above : Sketched while waiting for my flight out to San Francisco. Inspired by a multiple arm effect I saw from @jordiros.
Above : Drawn on the plane ride from New York to San Francisco. One of the sketches is experimenting with mixing organic and geometric forms. Another sketch is roughly inspired by the movie version of Falcor from The Never-ending Story, exploring the possibility of making something simultaneously goofy and elegant. Little alien next to him is experimenting with texture and pattern techniques for thumbnail-size (or more like palm-sized) renderings.
Above : Drew this on a train ride from SFO to San Francisco. I'm usually not good with robotic forms, so I wanted to practice. Ended up utilizing some more organic shapes.
Above : Drew this on a flight back to Maryland from California. Inspired by a doctoral thesis I listened to while at Stanford, about H. Pylori colonization behaviors in the glandular region of the stomach.
Above : And of course, an obligatory napkin sketch. Also drew this on my way back from San Francisco.

Travel Sketches

While traveling I usually bring a tiny sketchbook to make the commute more bearable, and to capture the moments- here are some of those sketches.
