Illustrator Ingo Fast’s year long, slow trip around the world posed difficulties not only in respect to the various modes of transportation he chose, but also in how he would continue his work as an illustrator. Often it wasn’t just the work itself or how he would carry it (e. g. cramped on a bus or train, balancing his drawing pad on a sailboat, finding a quiet corner in a hotel lobby or working in the children’s playroom of a public library). Also a challenge was discovering which means of communication would be available to transmit his sketches and illustrations: from slow dial-up internet connections to not too stable satellite phone-to-laptop hook-ups.
