the back street of SOHO

Here is my favorite place, near Jin's ex-office, 
because I can see pulse of the city. 
Well, anywhere in Manhattan are filled with pulse,
but here is a bit different for some reason.

Location drawing at Tribeca

Here is a location drawing at Tribeca.
It has been a long time since I draw something like this, 
without ideas in a picture. 
I usually make illustration with a brilliant ideas (I hope) as an editorial one.
Something like above illustration makes me relax to draw, 
because I can just focus on the object in front of me.   

NY Nightscape

Using the same sketch with black and white but they look different. 
Those are sketches for Lithograph. 
I am going to choose first one, because it looks more night scale in Manhattan.
What do you say?

Here is my beloved cat, Chiko. 
Though he passed away 6 years ago, 
he keeps living in my heart.

I miss him a lot...

A new watashi!

Here is my first eye-glasses in my life! 
Someone says I am like a strict teacher,
someone says I am like a found manager, 
anyway, I look a strict person more than I am! 

I love my glasses!

Green Day

Another my musician caricature is Green Day. 
ten years ago when I was in Japan, my favorite Canadian English teacher, John, gave me their CD to me.  John always sang their song when we were climbing mountain. Well, one of my hobbies is mountain climbing (I was a kind of expert as a mountain climber at that time) , then I brought John to North and South Japan Alps a couple of times. Oh, it was sweet memory for me.  I collected all their album as long as I could. 

When I was a high school student, I loved punk rock like the Clash. Green Day is a kind of familiar sound for me. I don't know how Green Day is famous now, but I know they released a new album recently.  How is it?

the White Stripes

Coffee and Cigarettes, directed by Jim Jarmusch, 
is one of my favorite movies.  
Jack and Meg... they were so quiet.
What did Jack invent in the movie?
