Draw Your Guide

Draw Your Guide

This showcase challenge is all about the faces that led you places. The person or character who acted as your personal guide, from white-water adventure tours to Dude Ranch cowboys. From navigating the Amazon river with you to an intergalactic alien giving a tour of our galaxy. Our tour guides are sometimes as entertaining and memorable as the locations that we visit. In this task we ask that you draw your guide - real or imaginary. The only condition for this challenge is that you draw, illustrate or mock up your artwork in our provided template of a photo album. So, get on it. Get to it. And bring this scrapbook page to life.



Meet Chris, a 30 year old fashion forward hipster hippie tourist guide. He was my guide during my trip to Costa Rica and besides being a local fashion icon, he was an amazing guide. His father was Dutch and her mother Mexican, that's the reason why he spoke perfect english and spanish. Thank for the adventure Chris! I'm never gonna forget that trip!

In this illustration I imagined myself in place where I was sitting face to face with my own spiritual guide. I imagine this man teaching me how to see all the good things in life and how to appreciate all I've been given.

We will always fondly remember our french tour guide during our trip to Paris back in 2007. He showed us all the best places to take long naps and bury delicious bones. It was an odd tour, but fun nonetheless. ;-)

At twenty years old, I still find myself following my mums guidance like a lost sheep at times. She taught me to day dream, make up stories in my own little world, play in the sand, talk to myself and above all do the things I love most in life. She is a real treasure, and I am looking forward to where she leads me next. 
Shout all to all the mothers! 
...And Tom Bihn backpacks!! :D

My husband I went on an Icelandic Adventure. For days and days we didn't see anyone. Just hiking - seeing waterfalls - glaciers - and the famous gorgeous Icelandic horses. He was my guide and I was his. Truly a stunning landscape.

My guide is my grandfather; wanderer, dreamer, teacher. He showed me that travel is never limited to the world around us nor is it only limited to the reaches of the mind; it is a beautiful mix of both. My drawing reminds me of trips we took and places we dreamed about, sometimes the lines between them are blurred in the best way.

A friendly elderly fellow whose facts regarding the height and age of Mt Vesuvius became even harder to interpret once filtered through his Italian-mountain-man beard. Eventually his guidance was more of an appreciation for his established character rather than any knowledge of the dormant volcano itself.
