Next up, Australian Architect Liz Steel and her traveling companion!
I met Liz this summer when she'd barely begun her 10-week-long travels through America and Europe...sketching and journaling all the way! We had a wonderful time, and I've loved having her be a part of the book, the blog, and my experience as a journal-keeper.
Liz does enticing drawings of her art supplies to start each new journal, and experiments often...her drawings are energetic and colorful, a delight to see. You feel as if you've traveled right along with her, seeing castles and cafe's, teapots and trains. She is one of the most prolific journal-keepers I know.
And of course her traveling companion, the little bear you see above, captures everyone's imagination--he's been drawn by many, many other journal-sketchers besides Liz! Quirky and charming, the bear is lots of fun. (When North Light has their interviews and extras online, you'll get to see a number of Borromini sketches, by Liz, Joseph Ruckman, Vicky Williamson, Laura Frankstone and me...I know there are a lot more out there!)
So...watch for it, Liz's interview should be up within the next week to 10 days! (Yep, she's off traveling again!)
