Here is a view of the beach at Kampung Air Batang on Tioman island, to the east of mainland Malaysia.
We spent almost a week snorkling the wonderful reefs but of course did no underwater sketches.
We spent a week hiking in the temperate rainforests of the Cameron Highlands. Here is a quiet corner of the village of Tanah Rata.
We spent a month backpacking around Singapore and Malaysia. Despite all the excitement, I took the time to do a few sketches…
Here’s one of the wonderfully chaotic architecture of downtoen Kuala Lumpur. That’s Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in the foreground.
I was in Shanghai for two weeks, working. I managed to do a few sketches.
Great art deco movie theatre
Piece of retro architecture in the bazaars outside the old town. ‘Ye Olde Cathay’ – style
Sketched from the Bund on my first day. The Jetsons-looking tower is the Pearl of the Orient Radio Tower.
In the spring when the sea melts, we sometimes see very bright fog clouds.
This one rolled in very fast, stayed for a few minutes then retreated.
Seen from my office window in Espoo, looking over the bay towards Helsinki.
The mystery about this car is not its model or why would somebody let this much snow accumulate on their vehicle.
What’s mysterious is that it seems to have been driving around without disturbing the snow bank on top of it. The street under it has been cleared of snow and it has even left fresh tire tracks.
The solution is of course that the city has moved the car before the snow ploughs came, and has then returned it to its parking spot. Probably that also explains the mysterious markings on the snow…
It’s been exceptionally cold here in Helsinki this winter. I drew this from the safety of a warm train.
Drawn from my office window. Downtown Helsinki can be seen in the distance, over the frozen sea.
It’s the second exceptionally cold and snowy winter in a row in Helsinki. There’s actually more snow here than in Lapland.
With temperatures below zero since November, the only sketching I’ve been doing is from my window.
For the next month or so, the sun manages just barely to climb over the horizon.
To see the changes in the landscape due to road building, compare with this drawing of the same scene from nine moths ago:
