About the Drawings
These 30 drawings on A2 paper were all done on-the-spot while on holiday
in several contrasting countries (Iceland,Scotland,Finland, India, Namibia,
Spain, Egypt, Greece...) The idea is always to capture the feeling of a place,
without planning but seizing the moment. Each drawing takes about 40
minutes – longer and it gets spoiled. I choose the everyday life of countries
rather than the big set piece tourist scenes.
