Travel Sketches Italy

Great way to nudge travel experiences deeper into your brain is doing #travelsketches. I brought a light A5 size sketchbook with coarse 160g/m² paper to Italy this year. Can really recommend the Castello in Milano for fantasy/castle fans! And Como (the town after which they named the adjacent lake) is just beautiful. Hint: if you don’t have enough time to draw the whole thing, just draw a tiny portion – it works either way! Brunate: this is the atmosphere of Italy in summer. The look down on Como from Brunate. Simply stunning.

Aikido Sketch (Greg Angus)

A few days after an Aikido workshop with Greg Angus (Canada) at Aikido Schule Bielefeld in Germany I drew this sketch with an Apple Pencil on an Ipad Pro (2017) using the Procreate drawing app. It shows Greg and Pablo from Spain showing one particular Aikido training excercises that stuck in my brain. Great workshop and great fun trying to recreate the scene in a drawing.
