Benjamin Güdel’s Google Street View road trip sketchbook project

Benjamin travels through Europe via google street view and sketches his findings.

He also provides links to the google street view images. Exploring the places he sketched so far is so fascinating.

From Benjamin’s facebook profile: “No money for a flight ticket, too lazy to pack your bags?
No problem: Stay on your comfortable couch and click the road, Jack. And, as every relevant artist, don’t forget your sketchbook: you won’t get bored and will show what a widely travelled person you are.
So: here are the impressions of my European Tour 2014…”
