Tokyo (last ones)

Here are more sketches from Tokyo, airport, bars, fish market (amazing place by the way, the biggest fish market in the world I believe) and people. The last sketch is an another example of the crazy cables and wiring that you can see pretty much everywhere around Tokyo. I did this one in Shinjuku.
I've had a lot fun copying the Japanese writing, I say copying as unfortunately I don't read or write Japanese, I just wanted to use my newly bought Japanese pen brushes as much as possible. The fire hydrant sign (red with blue characters) has a very funny big red letter on it, looks like a kind of monster.
Hope you'll enjoy!
I'll post some illustrations, sculptures... soon, and sketches from other countries.




















I've been to the Ghibli Museum as well in Mitaka, it was amazing! There was a fantastic Pixar exhibition at the time!
Here is the beautiful Museum's ticket.

Fantastic! Love the top sketch of the 747 and the earlier sketch from the back of the taxi.

Really looking forward to seeing some more of your work.

Really good work. I prefer the brush sketches to the more "formal" and no line watercolours and I think I should also go to Tokio and get a set.
Do you know Jorge colombo work with the same kind of brushes? I think you´ll like it

Those are wonderful. I love how sketches are so much more evocative than a photo travelogue. We get a glimpse of what you saw, not what a camera saw.
