^I'm not trying to cop this style of presentation from my friend Tony. The truth is that I was just too lazy to put each character in their own individual image. Check out Tony's blog for the real deal!
^ I'm sure I've seen my pal Ryan draw something like this before. I guess I have a habit of stealing from my friends. You should check out the rad drawings on Ryan's rad tumblr!
I went to Japan for three weeks this past September. I love Japan. I kept a travel log and did a few (and I mean a few) drawings. Here's some scans!:
^ I got that sticker from the incredible Ghibli Museum. I cried in there a few times when the permanent exhibit reminded me of why I love animation.
^ According to the map in the 16 hour flight, from Toronto to Tokyo, this was my route.
Here's some scribbles somewhat resembling the cool Komainu I saw at a temple:
^ My girlfriend's mother took me to a sake museum. There was supposed to be some sake at the end of the tour but we couldn't find any. Though what I did find was this way-cool stamp! A few places in Japan had stamps like this, so I got to fill my book with cool memories.
^ I couldn't leave Japan without first finding some retro Famicom stores! This was my poor attempt at copying some Japanese directions, and you know what? They saved me from getting (too) lost!
