There’s an order to these drawings and a story, but I’m still working on it! I think there will be multiple characters that the story follows with no text. More close-ups at goingtoast.com.
I left the inking like this for now. Maybe in the future I can colour it. It’s a fun combination of sketching, detailed drawing and cartoon illustration. I love the complexity of the scene with all the telephone and electricity lines. I drew this from a photograph I took myself. It was taken from a bridge of what is probably quite an ordinary street in Kyoto. The perspective was a fun drawing work-out!
This is something I brought with me from Cardiff. Usually I don’t like adding lots of things over a long period of time to one canvas or paper, but I’m treating this as more of a large illustration that I just want to build up. The original charcoal markings on the canvas were made during a performance I did about two years ago! I wonder what this will look like in another two years…
Now I’m updating this post with images of a more recent version.
