Summer for someone done with school forever isn’t what it used to be, but I still managed to make a pretty good show of it! San Francisco, Germany, France, camping, weekend trips, WHEW! I’ll be glad to stay in NYC for a while. I am back from my trip to Germany and France obviously, getting settled and back to normal life.
I stayed with my parents in Nuremberg for a few days, with day trips to Bamberg and Erlangen. We then drove to France, with a fun stop in Maulbronn to see the monastery. We stayed in Strasbourg a couple days (and we loved it), took a drive down the Route des Vins and spent some time in Colmar, then a day in Nancy, and my last day was spent back in Germany in Heidelberg. Very awesome trip!!! These two photos are from Strasbourg, one is a view looking toward Petite France (composite of two photos), and the other is a view from the top of the cathedral. Someday I hope to use the tons of photos I took as reference for some awesome kids book that takes place in medieval times… sigh.
Heading to the Brandywine Valley in a couple weeks with my fellow to check out some of the art museums down there, lots of illustration! Excited about that But in other news, I have a couple projects coming up, and I’m waiting on start dates for both of them. They should be pretty awesome though. More on them as they come, since I can’t really say much else at the moment. And in even more awesome news, the book I illustrated for Scholastic comes out in a week!!!! I’ll link you all when it’s up for sale on Amazon. Yay!!!
