New York City: Cullen’s Journal

July 6th, 2013

I wasn’t sure how Cullen would do with the journal, but I knew he would be excited to have one as well. In many ways, he did more meaningful “journaling.” He at least got closer to the intent of a trip journal!

He did this one on the airplane and claims that this is a drawing of our airplane.

He drew these before we got to NYC, and this type of drawing was repeated several times throughout the trip (though later in the trip, he claimed it was Bridget’s building instead of just random skyscrapers).

And for some random reason, he decided to draw Totoro. I helped him with the spelling (his writing is excellent!), and I thought he did a rather accurate job with the drawing!

The Empire State Building is a bit of a mess.

He often had quite the commentary on his drawings. Chocolate was a big theme of the trip.

He even drew what HIS chocolate restaurant would look like. It would have lots of chocolate gummies.

He drew the Statue of Liberty several times.

Sometimes she was orange.

This is his rendering of the NYC subway (the trains are to the left and the pathways between the platforms are on the right side). I can’t remember what all those specks were, but he had some reason for it. Maybe he was trying to represent how dirty it can be in the subway system!

He even drew his smiling pizza from Max Brenner.

I love the journals! I can’t wait to see what they come up with on our next trip.
