Memory and Imagination: A visual diary

Sketch Diary 002
Uta Sanders, full of thoughts and ideas, shared with me her idea to draw her travel diary.
Sketch Diary 003
Her idea reminded me of how inspired I was by an exhibition of Bobbie Baker's diary at the Wellcome Collection, and how I intended to draw a diary from then on. Neither of us had managed it, but we agreed it would make a wonderful project for our four days of trekking in Torres del Paine, southern Chile.

I should mention that I have always felt incapable and intimidated by the idea of drawing what's in my head, rather than what I see in front of me ... but finally, I really enjoyed the challenge!

This is my diary. I hope to share Uta's with you next time!
