For the past two years I have been traveling solo to various places, back and forth to South East Asia and all around the United States. I carried around this sketch book, which served as a vehicle to understand my ever changing surroundings. It was also a great dinner date, many a time. This book is a visual diary; these pages allude to specific times, places, mood swings, and peoples. In a culture where snapping a picture with your iPhone acts as a memory bank, I try to take a step back and process the moment.
