This is my first artbook, a collection of my Japanese brush pen sketches that I created whilst travelling around Japan on the subways and trains during my latest trip in 2016.
The pages in the book also encourage conscious awareness, contemplation, reflection, taking action, appreciation and inspiration through the imagined thoughts of the character on each page, sometimes in the form of my own poetry.
All of the commentary in the book is from my own imagination. I tried to bring an interesting and thought provoking message across to the reader, in my own creative way.
I also share some insight and personal experiences from my trips to Japan.
I can draw you, a friend, a loved one, or somebody else traditionally with pencils on artist quality cartridge paper. Once complete, I will ship your traditional drawing anywhere you like around the world!
All I need is a high resolution, good quality photograph to work from. Single source, direct lighting works best to draw/paint from. This is because a strong single light source allows for strong shadows, which reveals the forms of the individuals features much more, describing their unique shapes which allows us to recognise them.
This makes for a nice, original gift for anyone which can be framed and hung on the wall in any home or workspace, adding character and life to the environment.
You can choose between an A4, or an A5 pencil drawing to suit your needs and preferences.
* Price for couple is a little more. +$25 for an extra person.
