berlin+prague travel comic

I've been inspired by travel comics kept by people like Craig Thompson ('Carnet du Voyage') and Lucy Knisley ('French Milk') and decided to make a point to finish something on my five-day trip. It took me a couple days to get used to my pens (not using my usual dip pen, which I thought would be too messy). And I didn't want to spend the whole trip making the comic, so most of it is quick sketches while on the tram, bus (very bumpy!), train or waiting for Stuart to get out of the shower. So the scrappy draughtsmanship leaves lots to be desired, but I'm glad to have it as a souvenir of our trip.
(Please leave a comment, I'd love to hear which page you like best!)
