During the summer of 2015, I embarked on a journey that took me over the French Pyrenees and across northern Spain. I walked a total of 906 km (560 mi) on the Camino de Santiago from St. Jean Pied de Port, Franch to Muxía, Spain. However, the journey was as much inward as it was outward. I was challenged both mentally and physically. I never felt so alive.
In an effort to preserve this experience, I utilized several different methods of storytelling while on the Camino, including journaling, illustrations, and photography. Combined they make up my most treasured souvenirs.
Last night, I had the honor of giving a talk for the Sacramento Chapter of American Pilgrims on the Camino. My talk centered around the art of storytelling and why knowing the story you want to tell is an important part of your "Camino Experience". The presentation also showcased select photos and illustrations from my time on the Way. I'm currently working on making a collection of Camino prints available for sale, so keep an eye out or shoot me an email.
