I-F: Wired

I am so glad we are wired these days. It makes living across the world from your family so much easier, and makes you feel so much closer. When my parents moved from the UK to Canada, they went by boat and weren't sure if they'd see their parents again. Now, I can have daily contact with my family quite easily via email, webcams, etc., and can fly to see them within a day.

As I am doing TOMORROW. Yes, TOMORROW, I'm starting the first leg of my four month travel journey. I can't believe it really. It is one of those things that we've talked about for so long, and to have it beginning TOMORROW is really quite surreal. But I'm sure I'll cope!

So this week for Illustration Friday is a quick test of my mobile paint setup, seen here:

(it all fits in that little blue bag at the top of the image)

New toys include a Japanese watercolour brush (brush with receptable for water in the handle) and moleskine watercolour sketchbook. I think it will do me well for my travels! So this will probably be my last Illustration Friday for a while.... but i hope to do lots of sketches and doodles while i am away. Not sure how often I'll be able to upload images, but I will do my best!

so not much more to say except YAY I'M GOING! and my next post will be from the other side of the world... xx

This is so true! My family lives 5000 miles away, and I am so thankful that we can all be "wired" and communicate daily. Great illo!
Have a wonderful trip, I'm sure you'll have tons of interesting sketches from your travels. :-)
