I met a wonderful lady who commissioned me to do art / murals for her upcoming hotel. This is one of the figures that is blown up floor to ceiling in “La Bella Tagaytay”. Hope you like it! #labellatagaytay #robertalejandro #watercolor #hotelart #hotelmural #mural #art  #illustration

After our horse riding, I drew this.  We were in the middle of nowhere in the Gobi desert.

Sketching the scene inside a Mongolian “ger” or “Yurt” (in the middle of the Gobi Desert). I SO MISS MONGOLIA!!!!! It was so cold inside the ger until we made a fire (in a stove) then it got SOOO HOT. It was a bipolar ger. #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #mongolia #yurt #ger #gobidesert

I was totally in awe of the Municipal House / Theatre “Obencni Dum” (google it) in Prague. An incredible Art Nouveau building. I thought the best way for me to stop an appreciate the details of this building was to take some time to sketch it. #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #prague #obecnidum #artnouveau #architecturesetails

Another page from my Prague sketchbook: I would draw old photos from flea markets. I stayed at the Hostel Elf in Prague & made great friends from Poland! #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #oldphotos #prague #praha #hostelelf

I am working on art that will@be used for packaging (pulvuron from #casasanmiguel). The “candy” is packaged as “Julians’ Dreams”. Julian is a 12 year old boy who falls in love with a mermaid (it’s a folk tale from Zambales). Hope you like my drawing! #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #sketchpad #art #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #packaging #casasanmiguel #childrenillustration #mermaid #zambales

I am absolutely CRAZY about architecture! Prague is one of the best places to draw tower spires! I am wondering - wouldn’t it be a good idea if a tourism office bring me to their country to draw and come up with a beautiful mini book of drawings and photos to promote tourism in their country?!!!! Call me (maybe)! #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #praque #tower #spires #tourismoffice

This is my drawing of a public art / sculpture (Prague; Czech Republic) done by David Cerny. The sculpture is called “Man Hanging Out” - it’s Sigmund Freud wondering whether to hang on or let go! I LOVE public art - one day I’ll be doing a lot of it! #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #praque #czechrepublic #publicart #davidcerny #sigmunfreud #manhangingout

I sketch during meetings - it doesn’t mean I’m not listening! This sketch was done during a particularly stressful discussion (you wouldn’t know it from the drawing would you?). #thesketchingbackpacker #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #sketchpad #art #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #doodlingwhilemeeting
