Cartooning on the Coast to Coast
Well hello there.
I thought you might like to know I have a zine about hiking the Coast to Coast.
It’s packed with drawings, doodles, cartoons and sketches I did whilst on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk across England in 2010.
It is reproduced from drawings, doodles, cartoons and sketches I made whilst on Wainwright’s Coast to Coast walk across England in 2010.
Both Andrew and I took diaries on the trip. I decided to draw and doodle when I could. Almost every evening after we’d eaten, we’d sit and each be scribbling away furiously. It was so much fun.
I pretty much drew them straight down in the moleskine journal without any editing or pre-sketching. The only thing I did to clean the images up when preparing the images for printing in the zine was to try to clean up some of the water marks that had unfortunately smudged some of the drawings (as for how the water got there in the first place, you’ll have to read the zine!).
Every time I look at the zine it brings back so many happy memories.
It was such a brilliant holiday…
