Just wrapping up the final journal for 2014. It hasn’t stopped me from beginning the new one for 2015. Basically, the amount of journals that I am working on at any time expands to meet my addiction to sketchbooks as needed. These pages are some from my trip to Vienna in September.
Last fall I visited Amsterdam with Gabriel and my old friend and sometime traveling buddy Matthew. It is a beautiful city and a great one for walking, although I almost got run over by bicycles. What looked to me exactly like a sidewalk was in reality a bike highway and it was only by dint of furious handlebar bell ringing and shouts that I narrowly avoided being smashed several times. We mainly went to see the museums: the newly restored Rijksmuseum, the Van Gogh museum, and modern works at the Stedelijk. Photos will be in a future post, but here are some of my journal pages from the trip.
