My wife and oldest daughter went shopping at IKEA, luckily for me they planted me in the cafeteria with my sketchbook and pen.

Variation on a theme

Still using a borrowed pen, can't beat a good tree when you're out of new ideas

Feeling blue

I borrowed my wife's pen for a change charged with blue non permanent ink

Corporate monsters vs Artistic monsters

Didn't have time to draw much while in France but I managed to come up with some monsters though

Gare de Lyon

I made this drawing while waiting for my train to Clermont-Ferrand. I did not want to leave my comfort zone (and draw from life) but this is my view of the station (and showing some french stereotypes, sorry about that)

Add one hour and you got yourself a new post

So now the spreads counts in just under nine hours....now what I demand from you is that you'll look at this image for nine hours (fare is fare)

the web turned to flesh

Back from Rendez vu de Carnet de voyage had a wonderful time, meeting a lot of former web only friends and turning them to real life ones. Here are some images from my stay (didn't manage to photo som much so I had to borrow some images. 
Why eat when you can sketch? Left to right  Roger, Miguel "Freekhand",  Monica, Nina, Joaquin, Lapin, "mr R"the only non sketcher"and Ea 
The Panel discussion with Nina Johansson far left and with Ea Ejersbo second to the right and with the male in the center as per usual.
Clermont-Ferrand from my hotel window, more or less the only view I got of the town as I spent most of my time at the conference center.
Lapin makes a second attempt trying to sketch me, Lapin found me hard to sketch (my theory is that unearthly beauty is hard to catch)
Nearly done, trying hard to keep a straight face
The end result with a crude doodle from me destroying everything.
Gerard Michel with his warm laugh flipping through one of my sketchbooks 
This is my church, this is where I heal my hurt or my home for three day stand number 129, thanks to all you wonderful people who visited me, sorry that my books sold out on the first day but my bag was full.

Charles de Gaulle - Praha - Arlanda - 8 Hours

Just came back from France (I will try to post some photos of the event tomorrow. I had a wonderful time in Clermont-Ferrand (did not see that much of the city though, the days where packed. Unfortunately the books I brought with me sold out on the first day, but if you want a signed copy I still have some copies over at my Etsy Shop. The flight home was rather convoluted as I flew over Prague (and had a five hour wait there), but it made it possible for me to finally give a better estimate how long time each spread takes to do (that was the most common question on the conference). This image clocked in under just eight hours.

Compressing Hogarth

Just a sign of how effective an Illustrator of today are compared to an Artist working in the 18th century, it took William Hogarth two images (Beer street and Gin lane) what I managed to fit into one spread. Mark that I do not take any side in the Gin versus Beer debate. Leaving for France today for the Rendez vous Carnet de voyage conference in Clermont-Ferrand, so I will not post anything until I return next tuesday.

Carnet de voyage

I'll be travelling to France next week, I'm invited to the 12th edition of rendez vous du Carnet de voyage. I do not do much traveling these days and when I do I seldom do sketches from the locations I visit so I hope I will not be to much out of place. I did this sketch while being in Greece a couple of years ago.
