  1. These are great. I keep trying to be more sketchy in my initial drawings but, always end up correcting myself with one careful, neat line.

  2. Soooooo fantastical! Be safe on your journeys…and know that every wee human spirit is also connected to you…travel teaches you just how huge and ‘magical’ the human spirit is once all those wee heart strings are pulled in to be knotted with your own!

  3. great! I feel kinda jealous that you could hit the road and sketch. Hope you will make a portfolio and let me know. Best of luck to you.

    Love the energy of your lines! They practically vibrate. Can’t wait to get on the road and do some of my own travel sketches. 😉 We’re going on the road for a couple of years starting in April… got any Toronto recommendations?

    This is a confession. I can cut trees, split logs, cook, grow a garden, maybe a little folksy poetry. but when it comes to drawing? My drawings look like the ones I did in grade one. Total failure on that point. It is then a pleasure to come upon someone who show real talent with pen and paper. Thank you.

      Thank you. But I wouldn’t want to trade knowing how to grow a garden for drawing. Perhaps you would be into wood design, or ‘natural compositions’?

    Reblogged this on The Life and Times of Legs Magee and commented:
    If I could draw the places I’ve been instead of merely commenting…
    What a view…
    What an interesting hat…
    I would want it to look like this.
    Go look for yourself. Amazing work.
    …I now want to buy postcards and draw.
    My stick figures would have great adventures.

  19. You are a VERY talented sketcher my friend. I’m so impressed by how real these are. The colors in the nyskyline sketch are so perfect – it couldn’t be any better. The ability to share your experiences with the world by sketching in this superior quality is amazing. I look forward to experiencing your upcoming trip through your eyes and creativity. Good luck and cheers!

      Hi and thanks Cat Protectress! Wanted to respond quickly to be fair about the nyskyline: I photographed the drawings and then adjusted whites, etc: the colors are more contrasted here than they are on the originals – I suppose this would be how prints would look like though. But happy to hear you like this ‘picture’! 🙂 Cheers!

  20. Wonderful sketches. What a great way to remember a trip or a moment in time.

    You certainly were blessed with talent. Really enjoyed your sketches.

  25. My son is an artist and your style bears some resemblance to his, except that he uses more surrealism. I love your work.

    Thank you for visiting my blog and enjoying it! I will pay more visits here, so I can experience your journey.

  26. Great sketches! I especially love the bold colors and the minimalist detail in the ‘nyskyline’ drawing.

    • ooa revo says:

      Hi! Thanks for your feedback! (as noted in a comment below though, the colors here are more contrasted and vivid than in the originals) Will be sharing more soon.

  27. Awesome sketches! Love this kind of stuff — I’m very jealous of those who can draw like this!

  28. Love your use of bold color and the easy fluidity of yuour sketches. Enjoyed my visit here tremendously. 🙂

  29. Enjoyed the movie trailer as well as your sketches! My newphew is studying art in Austin, TX. I look forward to “following” you on the road!
