This is our first carbon balancing certificate with the World Land Trust. This represents 5 return flights to Malaga from Stansted. All our future flights will be balanced.. Drawing Escapes is carbon neutral :) 🌺 🦎 🐬 🐝 ☘️ 🌴 😎
I've updated the website throughout and revised some of the dates and availability as 2 of our guests for next year have moved from the May to the September Spain trip.
Best thing though, is that it's snow is landing on our landing page!!
These drawings by Frank Reed are awesome. Frank's been on 3 trips with us and these from Bali are simply stunning! They're layered with cut-aways so images behind are revealed and become part of the images in front. Very cool!
Here's a short video about the 2018 drawing holiday in Bali. Hope you enjoy!
I've just gone through all my Facebook pages and sorted them into one. Over the years the pages have grown organically from the original drawing in Spain page to a situation where every trip had its own. So now, we just have the one Drawing Escapes page that will have all the news for all the trips... phew! You will find it here https://www.facebook.com/drawingescapespage/ Please follow for all the news and availability on future drawing holidays.
Here are a few images from the trip to Berlin last week by Eleanor Marshman, Catherine Ward, Jane West, Alan Baines and Shannon Ward. Video coming soon.
Here are 3 sketchbook pages by Eleanor Marshman from the secret destination trip last year, which was to Riga in Latvia. Love the little compositional drawings! Eleanor has a new blog coming soon.. will keep you posted :)
So now there is no need to worry about the environmental impact of your creativity! From September this year all the drawing trips are going to be carbon neutral at no extra cost. We're going to off-set your flight carbon and the carbon generated by transport at our destinations by donating to myflightcarbon.com in support of the World Land Trust. The WLT purchase endangered environments and protect them by employing local people to manage the projects.

We're going green! :)
Congratulations to Iga Szymanska (drawing in Spain 2016) for being awarded the Highly Commended prize in the London heats of the International Design Competition run by the Society of Dyers and Colourists. These images are from her research proposal for drug sensitive textiles. Que bonita!
