Confessions of a Jetsetter w/ Mike Schultz


Burma Travel Sketchbook: Behind a thatch hut with a blue tarp roof, a small child plays in the rubbish pile outside of Mandalay, Burma.

When I am traveling, drawing helps me to see what is right in front of me. Not only is drawing a grounding, peaceful activity for me, but it truly helps me digest what is happening wherever I am. It slows me down, makes me really look, and connects me to the situation at hand. Living in South East Asia, drawing has helped me work through my culture shock many times. Also, because I am an art teacher, drawing has proved to be an incredible mode of communication between myself and my Burmese students, even when there is a language barrier…”
