Illustrations of the Frustrations of Travel

I’ve mentioned on this blog a lot that I work as a graphic designer and I also do a lot of my own artwork on the side. I was going through some old sketches recently when I came across these great illustrations I did a while back for a freelance job for a travel company. They were really fun to do, and I wanted to share them here with you. Each illustration depicts a different travel frustration or situation. I really hope you enjoy them!

  1. So funny Heather! I love these illustrations especially the ones about being upgraded to first class and one of the ladies doing a little leap and pivot! I’ve recently gone back to doing ballet classes which I used to do as a little girl. And believe me, you’d only do that if you’re happy ‘cos it’s pretty painful to do nowadays! Also, I like the illustrations of airport security acrobatics…

    Very nice!
