The man who spending life by art and travelling, Michael Kluckner, the artist with multiple role as an illustrator, cartoonist, watercolor painter, writer and heritage keeper, from Vancouver, Canada.

If you’d like to record your journey by some way unique, such as sketching, Kluckner suggests:
“Don't try to work too big; don't try to come back with finished artwork that you would want to hang on the walls. Write captions around the edges of your drawings – was it hot? Was the wind blowing? Make them more special and personal than photos can ever be.”

Art is part of life, and real life makes true art.  Observing and recording, keep exploring and studying, you’re artist of your life, too.
