This is the last part of the series. If you want to start from the beginning, page 1 is here. That’s it! I hope you enjoyed accompanying me on my trip to Florence. I’m pretty sure it’s going to be my last sketch diary for a while. While I love to make them, and amContinue reading “Florence sketch diary: last day in Florence, and thoughts about sketch diaries”
Here’s day 7 of our trip. If you want to start from the beginning, page 1 is here. Come back tomorrow when the conference begins.
Here’s day 6 of our trip. If you want to start from the beginning, page 1 is here. (Apologies for the wavy text, here and elsewhere: it’s because these pages are photographed rather than scanned, and not always perfectly flat) (The usual apologies to my colleagues – and any other *real people* I might representContinue reading “Florence sketch diary, day 6: switching to work mode”
Here’s day 5 of our trip. If you want to start from the beginning, page 1 is here. Read on to Day 6, when I switch over into ‘work trip’ mode.
Here’s day 4 of our trip. If you want to start from the beginning, page 1 is here. Read the next entry for a big discovery, plus the only cat in Florence.
This is day 3 – if you missed the beginning, start at day 1. Read on for a stroll around the bobbly Boboli Gardens.
Here’s day 2 of our trip. If you missed day 1, you can see it here. Now go to day 3 for stuffed courgette flowers and a long trudge to the suburbs.
In April 2016, I took a trip to Florence, Italy. This is my sketch diary. I hope you enjoy it. Intro page. In case you don’t recognise it(!), the dark lumpy thing that one of the cherubs is holding is supposed to be a truffle. Joe’s concern is very British: Now read part 2: aContinue reading “Florence sketch diary, part 1: the one-trouser strategy”
In which things start to go awry. Here’s part 7
In which we experience the typical Lake District weather. Here’s part 6
Here’s part three of our trip to Kendal. Now here’s part 4
As long-time readers will know, I often record holidays in the form of a sketch diary. Now, my trip up to the town of Kendal in the Lake District last October wasn’t exactly a holiday; I was there for the Lakes International Comic Art Festival, selling comics. Nonetheless, so much happened in the 4 daysContinue reading “Ladies of the Lakes, part 1”
This is the very final episode in our Totnes and Lyme Regis holiday. If this is the first page you’ve seen, you probably want to start at part 1, actually. Ha! I only wrote that page (above) out a few days ago, and several new things have happened in politics. It’s as if someoneContinue reading “Totnes & Lyme Regis holiday diary, part 6: in which we break everything and go home”
This is part 5 of our holiday in Totnes and Lyme Regis. If you haven’t seen prior episodes, you’ll want to begin from the beginning, so start here. We’re nearly at the end of the holiday now: just one more installment after this.

The image at the top of this post is a happy accident which happened on Photoshop, as I was trying to clean up the picture of the bookshop that appears in the third page below. I like it better than the actual painting, so here it is as a header. Part 1 is here, partContinue reading “Totnes and Lyme Regis holiday sketch diary, part 4: cows, worms, moles & other animals”

So, here it is! Every time we go on holiday I swear I’m not going to bother with a sketch diary — and every time, I end up spending more time and attention on it. I suppose I have to admit that there’s no escape now. This is what I do. So here’s part 1Continue reading “Totnes and Lyme Regis holiday sketch diary, part 1: one man and his gluestick”
