It’s Sunday Sketchup time! Every Sunday I plan on putting up something I’ve drawn, in one form or another, on the blog. The content will be whatever has moved me during the previous week, and this may not always be travel-related.
Ever since Steph and I left on our trip, I’ve been slowly getting back to my roots in the fine arts. For years I was stuck behind a computer, working very little with my hands and even less outside of my office. As we’ve been moving around, the world has inspired me to concentrate on doing what I love, and what I love is to express my creativity. I love photography, and the blog has been a great outlet for that, but I also love to draw, and slowly getting back into the habit of sketching has been really enjoyable, so I thought I would share it with all of you!
About the Sketch
So, credit where credit is due: this idea was Steph’s. It’s a perfect idea and I drew it with much love (for the Philippines, not for roosters. I hate roosters.). There are many things Filipinos seem to adore, but chief among them are roosters and karaoke. We could be literally trekking through the jungle and come upon a nipa hut shrouding a very expensive looking karaoke machine. And, inevitably, wherever we went there were roosters. It seemed every household had at least one, more if they could afford it, and the birds essentially had the run of the place, crowing as they would at whatever time or interval they saw fit. In retrospect it seems only natural that the two should meet, though only in my imagination. Amplifying a rooster is masochism I will not be a part of.
