Baby and Penguins

This is a live sketch I did of a baby and penguins. The baby was still pretty tiny and I came up with this idea on the spot, so the composition was done kind of quick, but I still think it was a fun new pose.

Studio Work

Here's another studio work. It's of Japanese handball player Daisuke Miyazaki. He's known for his jump attack and muscles so I wanted to make a drawing of him catching some air. I did the line drawing with a Japanese sign pen which has a small brush like nib which is used mostly for writing Japanese characters, but it's also great for drawing too. I finished the color using Copic color markers and Artstix. Then I finished the background in Photoshop.

Atsushi at Osaka Caricature Convention

Just last week a nationwide caricature convention was held in Osaka, Japan. Caricature Japan's very own Atsushi Saito represented our company and preformed admirably. Here's a peek at some of the works from the convention. Check out Atsushi's blog for more pictures and details. (go to the following link)

The 7th of July is the time to celebrate Tanabata in Japan. I made a little sketch for the fun of it. The big Tanabata festival in Hiratsuka starts on the 8th this year and continues through the weekend.
Dolphins are still Number 1 at the aquarium. This little girl fell asleep before I got here picture.
