then your life becomes a travelogue

So, lets get this show on the road. As I promised in an earlier post I'd share this new project I'm embarking on. It's basically a new sketchbook idea. A travelogue.

But, it's so much more than another sketchbook to me. When you consider that some of my Moleskine projects have taken as long as four years to complete then you might get an idea of how much I invest into them.

I always theme my sketchbooks too. I know it's obsessive but I see them as a whole, not a series of drawings. So, this is a project that I intend to get lost in. To obsess over. All for the love of it. I can't think of a better reason to do anything.

The idea is that I create a new travel journal. A carne t de voyage. But with a twist. I'm going to journal about places that I have never even visited. Yes. If you'd like to read more then click on these drawings. This is the story so far. Hope you join me on this trip.

Hahaha...I know I will not have the time (or money) to go to all the places I want to see so I thought I'd make a fake travel diary while I'm in UK.

Lovely pages and a lovely idea.

Have you ever seen this site of real places, ignored by traditional guidebooks, that seem imaginary?

Brilliant idea. And a real inspiration for me to try visiting the places I can only see with my imagination.

last year, for Roz Stendahl's International Fake Journal Month, i travelled to Ireland (i live in the US). it had to be "real time" as it were, so i had to do a lot of research on the places i visited, and then create journal pages. it was all great fun! i can't wait to see what you come up with, Andrea ... i have no doubt that it will be enchanting as always :D

Thank you, guys.

Michael, I tried to look on that site but my old laptop doesnt seem to like it. I'll try again. But who knew that there were all these people making imaginary journals?

Mo, I'd not heard of this 'Fake journal'. I guess you can never have an original idea.

Cheers, guys.

Beautiful work and great idea! I've been collecting "natural" things from around the world (sent to me by pen pals and far off friends) like rocks, leaves, etc. that has been fun. *bookmarks your site
