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!
Here's a very short drawing in Bali promo for Instagram :) We're now taking bookings..
Our secret destination trip last month was to Riga in Latvia. What a lovely laidback city! I'll post some drawings and photos soon, but in the meantime here's a little gem for Kathy Olsson.
Congratulations to Jess (Thailand trip 2016) on being runner up in the i-dott wallpaper design competition at the Whitworth Gallery in Manchester with her Thailand inspired design. The theme for the design brief was 'Limitless' and was sponsored by Arthouse Limited. Nice one Jess!
Third Year Begins!
Where did that summer go? Talk about time flying, possibly the quickest five months of my life, not that it has been wasted. I've been so lucky over the holidays and taken myself to Barcelona and Thailand; never have I seen so much beauty in two polar opposite environments. Barca was obviously very European and everywhere you go you are surrounded by the stunning works of Antoni Gaudi throughout the classic yet cosmopolitan city.
Thailand was a truly insane adventure that I would take again in a heartbeat - not only did I get to visit some stunning temples, ruins and beaches, I met some wonderful people and learnt some amazing things (about myself and my work). We went as strangers but came home as a family.
Thank you Drawing Escapes! Feeling refreshed and ready to go; I'm determined to make the most of this last year!
