Part one of my Japan trip in which I attempt to see every single sight in Kyoto
Love this!! I wrote about travel sketchbook/journals a few weeks ago and tried to figure out how to do a newsletter version of it. You’ve perfected it! ❤️❤️❤️ So glad I found your beautiful newsletter thanks to notes.
The Manger's reaction to your drawing is funny. Maybe he should've given you that discount! 😂
It looks like you had fun in Kyoto! I hope to visit Japan one day too.
I absolutely love this update and you amaze me with your ability to draw beautiful Japanese buildings WHILE STANDING. P.S. do you have any fountain pen recommendations?? I went looking for one in Bristol the other day and got major overwhelm.
Haha, “I look like my dad!” - so so good. Also welcome back and good luck with all the things in May! You got this!
That was so fun to see! Thank you for sharing it with us!
Haha! That restaurant manager won’t mess with you again! Love how you tell a story with drawings and photos combined
Such beautiful photos Lian! I bet the manager still treasures his drawing even if he looks like his dad LOL
This is so awesome Lian - love all of these sketches and your commentary, too!
This was such a to read! I love the chefs all enjoying your drawing (even if the manager did grumble about looking like his dad 😂) Thanks for sharing! Super entertaining way of sharing a trip! I just found your newsletter and I’m in! 😁✌️
Loved all of this so much. Thanks for sharing!
Thanks so much for sharing your adventures! I love seeing the sketches alongside what you were sketching. And I loved the way you told the interaction of the free portraits at the restaurant!
