Aside from drawings, doodles and paintings, my travel sketchbooks have collage art - I travel with glue! This is something I did in Santorini. I thought the art was appropriate because it was a “party place”. #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #greece #collage #santorini

My family used to travel every year to some foreign country. I remember I would ask to be left alone for a day - for me to be with my quiet self and draw. We don’t change much as we grow older do we? This is a drawing I made in Greece. #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #greece #greekarchitecture

This is an artwork inspired by a sculpture in Macau. Sculpture (public art) is just another thing I would like to do - some people say I do way too many things (I am “hard to market”). But that’s the way I am - my brain is wired to get excited to create all sorts of things. I couldn’t care less about “marketing”. #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #macausculpture #macaupublicart

I was a bit stingy this Christmas! Instead of purchasing gifts, I drew on book “spines” and made personalized gifts! #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #sketchpad #art #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #pen #robertalejandro #bookart #book #diy

I’m a bird watcher and one of my favorite birds is the sun bird. They stay in a certain place for a long time and so it is easy to watch them. This is my artwork / postcard from Ubud with a small sunbird? Where could this postcard have gone? It never reached my friend in Mongolia! #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #robertalejandro #ubud #bali #indonesia #sunbird

I wasn’t able to create much art in Ubud, Bali in Indonesia. The trip wasn’t as “slow” enough - maybe I needed a few more days of doing nothing! I did manage to draw this intricate detail of a stage. Do you know what I mean when I mention going “slow”? #moleskine #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #bali #ubud #indonesia

This is another lost postcard from Ubud (it never reached Gilda in Manila). I took inspiration from a “gumamela” flower, painting with “watery” watercolor.

As part of the “lost postcards from Ubud” here is an artwork I did when I visited “monkey forest” in Ubud, Bali. Do you see the little baby monkey in the drawing? #thesketchingbackpacker #watercolor #sketchbook #sketch #drawing #illustration #travel #sketchpad #art #slowtravel #backpacking #sketchbookproject #sketchaday #sketchoftheday #sketching #ink #pen #robertalejandro #ubud #bali #indonesia #monkeyforest
