Sketchbook Detour

***Temporary Sketchbook Detour***

I began a solo motorcycle trip from Los Angeles on Friday, June 22, 2012, heading north, as far as I'm having fun. I'll be updating my sketchbook with posts from the road, and not necessarily artwork. I'm too beat by the time I'm in camp or in a cheap motel.

I'll continue with the sketches when I get back in a few weeks.

Yeah right! It's been months! I'll get back to it as I finish up some classes and have more time again. Maybe in another month, like in February, 2013.

Motorcycle Touring Day 3 - Deer Park to Eureka


This was a magical day of riding small, twisty roads through vineyards, redwoods, jagged coasts, and forests.

Motorcycle Touring Day 2 - Salinas to Deer Park in Napa


It was a miserable, stormy day, with major traffic congestion through San Francisco, and my visor stayed fogged up all day.  The day was spent avoiding hazards and figuring escape routes.

Motorcycle Touring Day 1 - Santa Monica to Salinas


I just got back from a seventeen day solo motorcycle trip from Los Angeles up the coast, through Oregon, and Washington, into British Columbia, across to Alberta, then down through Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, Nevada, and finally, back home.  It was a blast!


Now I'm going to attempt to capture the essence of parts of my days on the road.  These will be themed doodles that make my trip seem a little like the kind Hunter S. Thompson would take.  Not quite...

Prying Eyes Doodle


I did this a couple weeks ago.  I'm not sure how I feel about the smears and multiple irises in single eyes.  Hmm.
