Travel Sketches from Europe


             A selection of images from my sketchbooks while I was traveling in Europe this summer.



                                                            Bern, capital of Switzerland.



I am in Bern, the bells are ringing, and the trees are singing.


                           The last time I visited Bern, I went to a house party with my friend Tobias, who was the bassist for the band playing that night.





                                                              Tobias ripping the bass.




And here is a music video by these guys! 




                                                                           Lynn



Stefan, the coolest farmer I've ever met. Worked at his organic farm in southern France for a couple days.



                                                                  Lynn's friend Lisa



                                                                         To much pollen...



                                                                                  :)




                            Met these girls from England who took part in the student riots in London.
                           


                                                              Retiro Park, Madrid, Spain

Mouser Cloud


               The other day I saw a cloud that made me do a double take. I immediately ran back into my house, grabbed my camera and took a shot. The profile of this cloud looks almost exactly like these weird drawings of mice I made last Fall. Crazy!

Where the Animals Play


                           This past May I hitchiked to Berlin and spent a week in this teeming city. This place is so bombed with graffiti and street art and exploding with visual energy. One of my highlights to this trip was seeing one of my favorite bands, Animal Collective, play!



                                                        Where the Animals Play



                                                                     The Incredible Dance



  A short poem I wrote about that night I experienced Animal Collective.



 I still have my ticket! I'm currently using it as a bookmark in Letters to a Young Poet by Rainer Maria Rilke.
             


        I was busy dancing my heart out but I managed to snap this quick photo, I was right next to the stage! 



                   My hitchhiking partner, Lynn. :)  Although this photo was taken in Southern France.



                   A quick sketch of Lynn from inside the Metro...and a random guy chewing bubble gum.



                               The graffiti bombed area of Berlin where Animal Collective played.
                     
                Some of that cool graffiti...






                           Animal Collective...

Fireworks







                         The last fireworks I saw in Basel just a few days before leaving Switzerland.
