Palawan, Philippines

The entire March I have been traveling on Palawan, the remotest island 
of the Philippines in the South China Sea. I have filled two new sketchbooks 
with drawings from places like Guangzhou (the airport of Canton, Southern 
China), the capital Manila, the lovely beach town Port Barton and touristy 
El Nido, where I've already been to in 2011. As I have been traveling together  
with my cousin Luisa, lot's of drawings feature her as a model, which she 
put up with patiently. More Palawan drawings can be found on my website :)
