Brad Pitt

With Father's Day coming up next m0nth we wanted to make some drawings of famous fathers. Brad Pitt certainly qualifies for that. With six kids he must be very busy indeed. Always playful, I wanted to sh0w Brad with his kids in a very playful drawing.

Tamura-san surprise present

Last month one of our coworkers, Tamura-san got married. So all of us artists got together and made him a surprise present by drawing him an his wife. This is the drawing I did. Since I'm close to the ocean, I thought it would be fun to draw them with an ocean theme.

Gambarou Nippon! がんばろう日本!

For those of you unfamiliar with the expression Gambarou Nippon, it means "Lets do our best together, Japan!" It has been the phrase that everyone has been using to support and work with each other to recover from the March 11th earthquake and tsunami.
Even the aquariums have been working together to support the Aquamarine Fukushima Aquarium. Several animals had to be evacuated from this aquarium and several other aquariums in the region have been taking in animals.

The Enoshima Aquarium has accepted and is taking care of a seal from the Fukushima Aquarium.

They have created a design with the seal in support of the other aquarium and are contributing donations to the recovery of the aquariums and earthquake victims. So everybody, let's Gambarou Nippon!

Check out this link to the Ensoshima Aquarium for more details in Japanese...

Momoe Yamaguchi contest drawing

I made this drawing of legendary Japanese idol singer Momoe Yamaguchi. She gave up a big singing career early in life to start her own family, but she is still known for the her songs. I was playing around mixing markers, artstix and watercolors for this. I'd like to do more work with the watercolors in the future.

Pink Lady

Here's a studio work I did of Japanese pop singers Pink Lady. I picked the them UFO from one of their famous songs in the past. I was going for a strong graphic style with pink oriented coloring (of course).
