Aside from this illustration, I wanted to include some sketches from my personal sketchbook that I used when I was in Tokyo.
These were all quick doodles I would make on the go. I carried my sketchbook with me everywhere...To work, shopping, hanging out with friends, to events, anything. When I had free time, I would soak in inspiration from the city, but mostly the people. Sometimes I would just sit on the street and sketch for a long time, watching people go by. Other times, I when out and about with friends, I would just jot down ideas on the train ride home. Usually, when I'm inspired by something, it is something visually, so taking quick mental notes from my brain and putting them on paper is a really good way for me to personally gather information.
Its amazing how something as simple as an "あ” hiragana shaved on the back of someone's head can suddenly inspired endless amounts of ideas.
