Tokyo commuters

I spent last week on a study trip to Japan,  a great opportunity generously supported by the Japan Foundation. The schedule was hectic and very full, but it helped to hone my speed-sketching skills, straight to ink using a simple fountain-pen and water-brush kit. So here’s a collection of Tokyo commuters on the subway, and a serene priest I saw elsewhere holding a bowl of tea (he wrote his name next to the sketch). More to follow when the jet-lag subsides…
