Hello everyone! Hello to the half dozen of our old readers!, hello to you, fresh follower! These are Leon and Nelson writing to you. We’ve had a little blog affair running here a couple of years (de cuyo número no quiero acordarme) ago, starting with our bike trip from Paris to Rome and thereafter continuing […]
A peek into the new studio
For a month now I’ve moved into a new studio. The previous one had been a spacious room occupied by at most 18 people, and while fortunately (and not inevitably) it’s always been pleasant company, a couple of times the vibes haven’t been the ones in favour of productive work. A lot depended on how […]
There’s a shop!
And now for but a quick announcement! Per popular request (and also my landlord’s insistence that I need to pay some rent) there’s now a shop on this site for all that stuff I’m making. Right now it’s all prints; if there’s demand for it, I shall provide some drawings as well. I don’t and won’t […]
To See or Not to See
Saturday, Greven. Standing in a concert crowd I was making faint attempts at doing a few quick sketches of the front man jumping about when a lady next to me remarked how enviable such skills … — It’s a sort of remark I dislike more and more. Nothing against flattery, I’m too vain to refuse […]

Back to where we started
What a better way to celebrate a second anniversary in Kraków than by arriving back to the city through the same route that took me before? Münster-to-Krakow can be done many times, and it has been my pleasure to reassure that you do not necessarily need 9 weeks for that. Although to be fair, 9 […]
Plans for travel plans
Where to next? It’s not a question that would concern me on a daily basis, but everybody keeps asking. Usually I reply by explaining my recent travelling history: Each year the interval between starting to plan a trip and actually departing has become ever shorter. If it’s linear, by 2020 I’m probably going to start […]
Yeah, that’s one thing I learnt in the States. Let’s get through its first week’s lessons. The passport controls were nothing special. I mean, I was checked like, one time in Warsaw, three times in Zurich, and nothing less than 6 times in Los Angeles (further on, LA). But all of them were routine. First […]
