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!

American Tourists in the 1970s- In Photos

I recently discovered the photography of Roger Minick, who went on a road trip around the Western United States with his wife in the late 1970s and took pictures of sightseers along the way. He is well known for his series in which he documented tourists in the National Parks around the United States and his photographs have been featured in exhibits around the world and have published in many different books. These photos do a lovely job of demonstrating the tourist fashions du jour of the period, and I would love to share a few of my favorites with you here!
