More travel sketches on the way to CHA

Still gathering my thoughts on the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. To stretch things out a bit more before I make a report, here are a couple more quick sketches from the trip out.

The view from the gate in the Atlanta airport. I arrived from my inbound flight with no time to spare – they had started boarding already!

A few quick bits from the flight out to California. It was a long flight but that is all I could get done as I started to feel a bit off.

Back from a Very Long Trip

Have just returned from a long trip – Florida to California – where I was given the opportunity to attend the craft and hobby industry trade show to help promote my first book Knit & Crochet Combined.

That’s a long way to go away from home for me. I’m very much a homebody but this was too good to pass up. Having just returned home this morning around 1:00 AM, I’m still a little tired and fuzzy so this post will be short. I’ll elaborate on the trip and what I saw and learned in future posts.

To spice things up a bit, I tried to keep a sketch diary of sorts as I traveled. Due to a full schedule, it didn’t get used as often as I would have liked, but I did manage a few things.

To start, I left home at 5:15 AM on Sunday morning to make sure to sit at the gate in our regional airport. The transportation service I used gave me that pickup time which allowed me about an hour to check in and go through security. That all took around 10 minutes so I was in no danger of missing the plane.

With plenty of time to draw, I also got a nice sketch of the carpet patttern at the gate too.
