Be it Kuala Lumpur, Tokyo, China or the Philippines, illustrator Pablo Ientile draws inspiration from typical Asian scenes to fill the pages of his sketchbook. Having started his 10-country tour in Kuala Lumpur on September 15 last year, Ientile has camped on couches in the homes of strangers across Asia – all in the name of his Illustration Around The World project. The project, which follows the main character – the bear Pablo – on his journey, also features the work of illustrators from the countries he visits.
