New Orleans Travel Journal

We returned home this weekend from a wonderful week in New Orleans. Here's a few pages from my travel journal. With not much time to sketch, many pages are a montage of ephemera and photos. Trip highlights include- great friends, Whitney Plantation, The House of Blues Gospel Brunch, Chris Roberts-Aniteau Galleries, street musician jazz, Preservation Hall, architecture and food.
