Capturing a Rocket Launch in Analog and Digital

This past week, I had the opportunity to chronicle a Dragon rocket launch at Cape Kennedy in Florida and did it with my journal as well as a with my Journalist app on a Surface Pro tablet.  I combined them here to share.

Travel/Art Journaling Starter Kit

Journaling Supplies
These are the portable journaling supplies that I take with me on my adventures.

Here is a short supply list to get you started with art/travel journaling:


Pick a journal that is easy to take anywhere.  Do not get a journal with standard book binding as they wear out.

  • Good: Spiral Sketchbook (5″ x 8″) thick paper is best for watercoloring
  • Best: The Origninal 5″x7.5″ Journal with watercolor paper from Iona Handcrafted Books
