I am extremely fortunate to be able to travel to China a few times a year for work. Last month was my first time there, and it was mind blowing and amazing and life altering. Honestly, nothing gives my perspective a workout like traveling. Even though it was a work trip, so much of it felt like what I like to do when visiting a new place: experience it to the fullest.
I drew a lot. I'm only posting a few things here. These are pretty minimal and rough as it is--most of the drawings I made were like that. Car time was drawing time, and the rest was doing things--work, meals, visiting places and meeting so many people.
The region of China we visited is tropical, which is also completely new to me. I think in future visits, if there's time, I wouldn't mind drawing some of the flora there. I loved the hills. There would be miles and miles (kilometers) of tall buildings, and in the distance, green lumps rising out of the buildings. On these grew the tropical plants and trees.
The last day our company spent in China, we went to Hong Kong, which was INCREDIBLE. I hope to visit there again on future trips. I'd love to document that experience more. In the meantime, I'm taking a short class in Mandarin, and gearing up for the next trip!
