On November of 2005, my wife and I went to Italy for three crazy days. I drew and wrote this during the trip pretty much as it happened during any down time we had. This journal was inspired by Craig Thompson’s Carnet De Voyage (Travel Journal). It’s BRILLIANT! I loved it so much I wanted to give it a try. I was also somewhat inspired by Enrico Casarosa’s Sketchcrawling sketchbook. Although I had only flipped through it at the time and I have yet to actually take a real close look at it. I was just aware that it existed. I have seen and read his Venice Chronicles journal though. It was a very interesting and entertaining read. I recommend it. His journal is in color and it’s just fantastic to look at. It’s also 124 pages long. Much better than my 12 pages. Obviously I wrote mine before he did his but he took a year to write his while I did mine during the actual trip and I didn’t add anything new once I got back home. I didn’t want my journal to become a job. I just wanted it to be fun to make. I hope you enjoy it.
