and welcome to my humble sketch thread, these wont be ver refined sketches or studies since I am travelling (just finished my second year in Australia and in New Zealand now) and really only scribble visionary memories, add notes to later on have everything in it to turn it into something more elaborate.
But as for now, enjoy!

and here we go for the first few, I guess thats how it works, post replies to show your stuff. Sorry never really done much more than surf others sites since going on my journey.
I dont keep my sketchbook in chronological order so the pieces come as I chuck them in there - just in case some may marvel over the jumpy dates on some.
1 - coverpage of my sweet sketchbook, thanks again to my dear friend Meli who gave this to me as a xmas gift.
2 - 'Mangroves', Roebuck Bay, Broome - AUS
3 - 'Mum'
4 - flock of seagulls, they are literally invading Hyde Park in Sydney, sitting there you better not eat ... vicious birds.
5 - infamous Sydney Opera House

hey! great start!
I'm amazed at the deatiling of the trees.
Btw, did you draw the stylized kangaroo in the cover?
I really like that one. It reminds me of Inuit art.

Thanks for you reply, and the roo on the coverpage (along with the note) was done by my friend who gave this book to me as a gift for my travels. So you could call it a personalised not. =)
The mangroves took me about 2 days works to do with a fineliner :).

1 - people at Frankfurt airport, drawn while waiting for boarding on my way to Australia
2 - cont'd & Hyde Park, Sydney

Sometimes to me a sketch is more notes than actual drawing; and a rough color sketch and more detailed head study of Kurajong YHA, Dubbo lovely backyard dog. Poor lonely thing.

Its been a rainy day here in New Zealand and so not only me but also the cats stayed in, Harley almost all morning and midday made himself comfy on my bed and so happened to inspire this sketch. Sleepy little cat him.

and here comes todays tune-inspired sketchy
I quite like it, so it may see a finer redo at some point. Enjoy.
And have a lovely day everyone.

First two are what can be called Dandaragan files, I drew them in my sparetime working on local peach and nectarine orchard, not much of such occasions back then. Gum Nuts and Conroy illustration ("Good Murder" novel).
Last is from my 'The Ugly Tourist' series, still in the idea phase, but it'll come - characters like these are what you encounter travelling and leave you shaking your head in wonder.
Lovely weekend everyone

Plus there's a thing calles 'Open Studios' coming up where you can visit artists studios, galleries and all that, might try get some involvment going there as well.
