Spanish artist reveals breathtaking travel journal

José Naranja, a Spanish artist with an impeccable eye for detail, has been spectacularly documenting his travels across the globe. 

With almost 60 countries visited so far on his journey, Naranja told Lonely Planet Travel News that his inspiration “comes from real life” before adding that “travelling is such a special environment for that.”

Naranja continues: “Ideas pop up continuously, and I just filter them and process them in a beautiful way. Handwriting is the most flexible way to document experiences and ideas. Photography also plays an important role, but it can’t keep ideas or dreams. A notebook in the pocket is ready to receive any kind of information,” 

“For me passion and fun are the key to creating good work. Otherwise, I can’t stand hours writing if I don’t feel it. I’ve doing notebooks for many years for myself, but it’s a surprise for people who discover my work in Instagram. It’s a nice and friendly community, so I’m happy to share it with them.”

Here, in spectacular detail, is an example of the work inside his travel journal:
