From the start of May to the end of August 2016 my wife and I threw everything up in the air, pressed the reset button on our lives and went travelling around South America and Cuba. It’s been an experience I’ve been very fortunate to have had, taking in such a range of sights, wildlife, cultures, beliefs, mythologies, everyday lives lived and food and drink.
From urban sprawls to odd out of the way pagan monuments, it’s been fascinating to realise that wherever you go, decent people are decent people and culturally we all tie back to the same roots of a fascination with the sun, moon and the lengthening of shadows. And maybe the most important realisation: if it can ferment it can get you drunk.
I took a sketchbook with me and along the way, it got battered, bent, damp and nearly ended up at the bottom of the sea but fortunately it got back in one piece. It’s been filled in with pages of impressions, inspirations, in situ sketches and random brain farts which seemingly have nothing to do with the trip. The pages range from very quick loose work to more tightened up pieces.
The pages have been scanned, tidied up and formatted into a nicely designed package. With accompanying notes to shed light on the where, when and why of the illustrations within.
Special mention to old-timey friend Ciaran McDevitt for supplying the original music that accompanies promo video. Much appreciated.

Risks and challenges
This is my first Kickstarter project.
As you can see from the relatively low funding goal I'm hoping to cover costs such as printing/postage etc thus helping me to get this publication out there.
The sketchbook has been scanned and formatted for publication and is ready to forward to printers and upload as a PDF document. I have created numerous comic book/illustrated content for companies and clients previously and have professional knowledge of creating and outputting for print and pdf.
If you select the A3 original artwork option, after consultation I will endeavour to produce this as quickly as I can.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
