Roadtrip Sketchbook 2011

For one month between September and October in 2011, myself and three friends traveled across the country in a little Toyota Rav4. We traveled west from Boston along the northern side of the country, south the leftcoast, and then back east along the southern side.

I carried a small sketchbook with me, where I drew portraits while bumping along in the car, or sitting at a reststop / campsite. Some things are completely random, but most of the portraits I drew were inspired by the place we were in or the people we stayed with.
