World Tour

For decades I've been holding onto an old dilapidated atlas. It seemed to be calling out to me from the bookshelf, "You've got got the whole world at your fingertips. Go ahead, explore." So I finally honored this advice (with ample assistance from sumi ink). I hope you enjoy these impressions from the first leg of my journey!

A tribute to Polynesian ink (drawn with sumi ink)

A view of Robert Smithson's "Spiral Jetty" on the Great Salt Lake

Ode to Peter Paul Rubens

A Veiled Society?

"Wall of Skulls" at Chichen Itza, a Mayan Temple

Inspired by Constantin Brâncuși's "The Kiss

I'd love to your thoughts on this essay. What images have left an impression on you in your travels? Stay tuned for more posts from the second leg of my journey!
