Natalie 'Tally' Nourigat wasn't able to afford art school, but she did have an incredible travel year in her mid-twenties that lead to a breakthrough in her art career. In 2013 she took an au pair job in the French countryside, and ventured out from there to see the European continent for the first time, couch surf, visit world-class art museums, meet inspirational new artists, sit in plazas people-watching, and draw, draw, draw. These PDFs collect the highlights from Nourigat's travel sketchbooks, including caricatures of everyday people, environment studies, sketches from her imagination, and short comics.
This Gumroad download includes 215 pages of artwork from Natalie "Tally" Nourigat's sketchbooks (observational sketches, jotted notes to self, sketches from imagination, and autobio comics) in 8 PDFs for easy downloading/viewing.
