Drawn Along The Way
Earlier this month, I put together a draft book of my collection of sketches from my pilgrimage in Spain last spring. This was the Camino de Santiago which involved a month long walk across northern Spain culminating in the city of Santiago de Compostella. This is also know as the Way of Saint James, as the remains of the Apostle are believed to be enshrined in the Cathedral there. Hence the Title - DRAWN ALONG THE WAY, My Camino sketchbook.
The book is not a guide, rather a reflection of the experience and includes about 70 of the 110 sketches I did while on the trail. My good friend, Anne-Louise Mahoney, who is a professional editor did a very helpful edit and I will be launching the book and offering it for sale in the next few weeks. It has been a very satisfying project in part because writing it helped me process the incredible experience of this ancient pilgrimage and share the drawings in the form of a book.
