One of my goals during my trip is to collaborate with people that I meet while traveling. Collaborating is a good way to build relationships, gain outside influence and to create something you never would have been able to create on your own. On the first leg of my trip in Nozawaonsen, Japan, I’m traveling with someone - who turns out - is an amazing illustrator. After seeing his work, the gears in my head started to turn. I knew I had a few projects coming up that could really be cool if we collaborated. This is “Saucy” from Belgium, he’s drawing up something special for a set of ski graphics that I will scan and incorporate into my design. I’ll update this post with the final artwork so you can see the outcome of the collaboration.
