My Traveling Companion For My Travel Sketchbooks

My companion for my London Sketchbook:  This is Mickey in his bread airplane, taken from Maurice Sendak's book In the Night kitchen.  I painted him on the first "notes page" in my travel sketchbook for my upcoming Fall trip to London.  This is one of my rituals for European travel.



I loved reading this book to my children and grandchildren, and enjoyed Mickey flying in the bread airplane he shaped from a large lump of dough.



I first painted him in the grid of small daily 2 X 2" paintings in my travel Sketchbook for Venice in 2012.



Mickey also appears on a 2 X 2" grid page of my Paris travel sketchbook



But he most often appears on the first page of my travel sketchbooks - on the top of the page with my contact information, in case I misplace my sketchbook on the trip.  Here he is from our vacation last year in Venice.
