the best of sketches in travel february

Hope springs eternal, well lets hope so as we say goodbye to February and hello to the first month of Spring; March. February has been another busy month, full of contrast, from festivals to singer / songwriters, competitions and travel guide reviews. So as is tradition we give you our pick of February.

Chichibu Shrine
Shopper Lottie Magazine - Two articles were published this month, both travel related, both from very different viewpoints. The first was actually the second part of a two part look at why Japan should be on your bucket list. The second part featured towers (Tokyo Skytree), trains and toilets! Towers, Trains and Toilets! If you are a fan of paintings then the second article looked at the work of Sasha Harding. I've featured her here before and wanted to do so again but from a different viewpoint. I hope you enjoy them? The artwork of Sasha Harding

Setsubun Festival artwork
Festivals - At the very beginning of the month we did a feature on a Japanese festival; Setsubun. Although that festival has now gone, Sketches will be looking at various festivals from time to time throughout the year, so why not get a flavour of what is to come? Setsubun festival

Singer / Songwriters
Sketches has been very fortunate to have collaborated with singer / songwriter Kelly Oliver. A rising star of the young folk movement. This first part looked at her early work; an EP and album. Part 2 will be coming out later in the week, ahead of the release of her new album Bedlam; so be sure to look out for that one. Kelly Oliver interview

So another interesting month in the life of Sketches. As always I have to thank you for your support; it's truly amazing. March looks like being an interesting one with more from Kelly, a feature on Venice and another Travel Doodle. 

Oh talking of travel doodles, February's featured a giveaway! There are still some apps available, so leave a comment here of a place you're visiting this year and I'll send a code for a travel app from GPSmycity. Click on the link for more details Competition.

Until next time.....
