I’m back!
For the last 3 1/2 weeks I’ve been traveling around Europe with my good buddies Julian and Valentin.
We started in Hamburg, hitchhiking down to Pforzheim, then Munich, Salzburg, Budapest, the Plitvice National Park in Croatia, Zadar, Preko and Gratz.

Carrying a travel sketchbook with me I was drawing and writing as much as possible, trying to capture our adventures in little stories, sketches from life and memory as well as drawings from imagination.

I will post a bunch of drawings every day in non-chronoligical order, starting with these life-drawings I did in Plitvice. It’s an amazing national park in Croatia full of breathtakingly beautiful lakes, with christal clear turqouise water, small and large waterfalls and amazing plants, rocks, mountains and trees in all shapes and sizes.

Especially the trees impressed me. It’s amazing what twisted crazy shapes nature will assume, when it’s left alone to grow free and untouched for decades.

Kerascoët’s covers for Beauté with scans of the original art for the 2nd and 3rd tomes and the cover design for the first.

I think Kerascoët’s use of green ink is very interesting as a way to define lines and spaces meant for color while maintaining information within the image that black ink would otherwise compromise. It’s a smart method with using green to define the sky against the cloud and especially with the amount of creatures drawn heavily with black, the green prevents her from losing the shapes and figures to black and also from committing the all too common aural line around figure that would completely destroy the eerie mood of the third cover or the delicate detail of the comb going through black hair in the second.

This book looks great. Please come to America. I don’t care if it’s translated or not.

This book is coming out from NBM this Fall. All three books in one oversized volume, coming out around the same time as a larger collection of Miss Don’t Touch Me. It’s called “Beauty.”

The Bhaja Caves of Maharashtra, India.

Bhaja contains about 29 rock-cut caves, which date back to the 2nd century BCE, and is described by the Archaeological Survey of India to be “one of the important Buddhist centres of Hinayana faith in Maharashtra.” 

A prominent features of Bhaja is Cave 12, a chaitya-griha, pictured in the final photo, which is considered one of the earliest of its kind. The stupa at the back of the large apsidal hall was used for worship. Cave 20 contains a group of stupas, which were built in memory of deceased monks, and probably once contained their relics.

Cave 18 was a monastery, and its verandah contains two famous sculpted reliefs. One of these (pictured in the 2nd photo) is located to the left of the door. This artwork depicts a person riding an elephant (thought by some to be Indra) who carries an ankusa (elephant goad), with attendants aside the figure, carrying a banner. The second relief shows a royal personage aside two women. The royal figure (who some identify as Sun god Surya), rides a chariot driven by four horses, and appears to be trampling a demon-like figure.

By Cedric Laquieze, perfectly combining and morphing wings, seeds, bones, and body parts (mostly from insects), these incredible mystical faeries are born in all variety of forms. They have a wonderful magic to each individual with the vibrant colours and elaborate headdresses.
