Just a real quick one as I'm about to leave on vacation. I wouldn't have even bothered, but this weeks Illustration Friday topic of "Trail" was too perfect to ignore.
I'm about to go motorcycling across the United States, following the trail of one C.K. Shepherd, who rode across the country on his motorcycle after he came back from World War One, back in 1919. He documented his journey with the book Across America By Motor-Cycle, which you can find, free of charge, on Archive.org. And as we follow his trail, our crossing will be documented by my good friend Chris, at acrossamericabymotorcycle.blogspot.com
I'll probably do some sketching on the journey, and I may update from the road, but for now, no promises.
