In September 2018, my husband and I turned in the keys to our apartment in Brooklyn. We left Brooklyn on our bicycles, riding south to Florida, then west to Los Angeles. Over five months, I filled two sketchbooks – at campgrounds, in restaurants, at strangers’ homes, and in the great outdoors. The sketchbooks became a physical memory of the trip: a souvenir, but also something I could share with people we met.
These are some of my favorite images from those sketchbooks.
