Curiosity #69: Vacation Themes

Anthropology, Religion, Travel

As an experiment I decided to document my month-long vacation with a marker instead of a camera. Each day brought new themes —  some witnessed, some felt, others inspired by advertisements or street postings, all of which I tried to capture with doodles and a little color. Of the 29 illustrations completed on my sweep from Malaysia to Japan, 18 are posted below.

  1. $200,000 for college down the tubes. Why couldn’t my kids be engineers? I’m doomed…doomed….down a Kyoto rathole with the Octopus prince. (Just kidding, Julie. These pictographs are really great. Glad to see you’re back on the blog. Warmest regards, Daddy-san)
