This is a podcast about drawing on location, with host Nishant Jain. Nishant speaks with other artists and urban-sketchers about the things that motivate them to draw their world, and the different ways that it enhances their lives.

In the latest episode, I speak with traveler and urban sketcher Luis Simoes about his journey around the world. Luis quit his job as a graphic designer (in his early 30s) to backpack around the world, drawing all the interesting sights he would see. What motivates a salaried, young person to take on a life of less comfort, certain risks and constant instability? Is there really a pot of gold at the end of this rainbow? Or is the goal the journey itself? This conversation became the longest session I have recorded yet, because I had so many questions and he had so many stories. But do not be intimidated, for there is a small break in the middle - to recap and reassess before we continue with Luis' adventures.
