Way To Go!

The Gallery One Ten is having a visual arts show on transportation. It sounds really great and it open today. The show will run until February 12, and then the show will be taken over by the Temporary Museum of Permanent Change, which is HUGE!
====================================================================
My submission is a 30x40" watercolor and ink illustration, showing how various important people from around the world traveled. Hopefully it shows how these people did what they did in large part because of how they travelled.
====================================================================
Woody Guthrie, for example: Woody rode ontop of and inside trains. This allowed him to travel all across America and learn songs from other people. Get to know their lifestyles. He wrote the song, "This Land Was Made For You and Me", and who better to write it than someone who really experienced the people living all across America?

Congrads! These are great. I like the water color and pen/ink look. It totally works with your drawing style. I could diffidently see this as a picture book. You might consisder submitting it to a publisher.
