Mark Adams is a cartographer-geographer with the National Park Service who paints and makes videos on Cape Cod. He travels for his health and wellbeing and believes the sketch-journal is an antidote to seeing the world through a lens. “Non-artists should draw and non-writers should write because no one will ever see the world the way you do.” He filled his first complete sketchbook in 1980 on the Chilkoot Pass in southeast Alaska, his first successful watercolor standing in an alley in Arles, and recently brought back a pocketful of scribbings from a brief stint on the Gulf oil spill cleanup. He learned the value of speed-sketching on ferry boats  leaving Istanbul, Martha’s Vineyard and Santorini. He lives in Truro, Massachusetts.

  2. Really neat stuff here….I did this once in Topkapi….probably lost the notebook though.

    Thanks for sharing it here.

  3. LOVE THIS!! Your images and commentary on India and Bhutan brought me back to a recent trip to India and Bhutan. Wonderful emotion conveyed in the images and makes me want to get back into non-digital journaling and on a sketchpad next time.

    Great idea for the kids on our next trip – thanks for sharing!

  4. You inspire the desire to become a foreigner. You are most intriguing, unique, talented. Thank you for this. Will administer a “pop quiz” to know more someday.

  6. I was transported to a place I have never been through your incredible sense of talented creativity in mixing video, great writing and great drawings.

  7. Thanks for bringing me back to Rishikesh, across the Jhulas, dodging monkeys and dire beggars, motorcycles at my heels, for rooftop discussions in the metaphysical, where I was challenged to save a man’s life, and almost lost my own from food I ate. Only in India…I can’t wait to go back. A neighbor from Massachusetts. LETTERS FROM INDIA

  8. I don’t even know how I stopped up here, but I
    believed this publish was once good. I don’t realize who
    you’re however certainly you’re going to a well-known blogger if you happen to are not already.

  9. I just want to tell you that I am all new to blogs and truly loved you’re page. Probably I’m going to bookmark your blog . You certainly have terrific well written articles. Kudos for sharing your blog site.

  10. Thanks for the recommendations shared in your blog. Something else I would like to talk about is that weight reduction is not supposed to be about going on a celebrity diet and trying to shed as much weight as possible in a couple of weeks. The most effective way to burn fat is by taking it slowly and following some basic recommendations which can assist you to make the most from the attempt to drop some weight. You may know and already be following some tips, however reinforcing expertise never does any damage.

  11. Does your blog have a contact page? I’m having a tough time locating it but, I’d like to shoot you an e-mail. I’ve got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great website and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.
