An Art Journal in Canada 2017

An Art Journal in Japan – Travel with Pens & Colors, 2016

If a picture is worth a thousand word, an art journal can show travel lovers thousands of words of an amazing trip in just a minute. While art journal is very common in western countries, there aren’t too many postage of sharing in Asia. So, how did I work out an Art Journal for a creative trip? To start with, bring some simple drawing materials which are easy to carry for the trip like watercolor, ink pens, maps, pencils, camera and an art journal sketchbook. I try to make full use of the time during lunch period at Universal Studio theme park. A multi-tasking mission, playing and drawing all go together. Record what I have eaten by taking photography and then finish the illustration for a gourmet tour! Watercolor pencils are very easy to use materials to fill in colors quick after sketching. After finishing the visit, draw another driving map for Arima hot spring…..pencil sketch and watercolor effect are the best to represent the natural environment. Finish the final drawing with a beautiful night view. In fact, never giving up to draw whenever there is a short break. This adds passion for me to complete the artwork within the trip.

Draw life to happiness. Paint life to colors.
