Hey Ken,

That's awesome, are you going around the world or what? I've always wanted to go to Australia (R.I.P. Steve Irwin). I hope you have a really nice trip and that you'll bring home a bunch of new inspiration and drawings for your blog:)
Great sketches btw, I really dig the blue Hades guy.

Take care,

Hans
