Santiago de Comp. sketch

3 Aug

While I was wandering around Santiago de compostela last year for about a week or so – I just walked around the old city and ate octopus and sketched a lot. There is TONNES of tourists but the city’s old character still comes through – which is probably why they all come. That and the fact that the old cathedral of St James is ridiculously impressive.

The reason I ended up going to Galicia in the first place is because I was trying to organise some gigs in Europe at the time that Nadine and I were travelling there – An artist bloke I know in Hobart by the name of Scot Cotterell gave me some contacts in Galicia, where he had been not long before. Below is a video that he made at the steps to the cathedral. That him with the black shirt with the Australia on the back.
