retro series

The Demogorgon

Is anyone else going to talk about that scene, where Eleven is too weak to run (because she squeezed all the bad guys’ brains with her mind), so the boys get her up, and DUSTIN CARRIES HER IN HIS ARMS ALL BY HIMSELF as they run away from the monster?… No?… Okay.

“She squeezed your tiny bladder with her mind!!“, God, I love that boy so much.


Final piece in this “Tokyo Storefront” watercolour illustration series. This is a really interesting sushi shop located in the Yanaka Tokyo district. I like how this building combines traditional Japanese elements with this designer’s white front and huge but simple sign. With this piece the storefronts series is finished. 

I really enjoyed painting the shops so I will probably do more such illustrations in the future. I will change the subject and the format a little bit though - I would like to paint some more horizontal buildings (like the Japanese bathhouses for example)! 

For now, ON to the next project as soon as my studio workload decreases a little (we are working 7 days a week right now). Thank you for watching and sharing this series, I will make the remaining making-of videos and maybe make a longer video to cap the series. Technical stuff:

  • Medium: HOLBEIN Waterford white 300g/m cotton paper
  • Lines: COPIC Multiliner SP 0.7mm
  • Colours: My watercolours set explained in my blog’s FAQ

「東京店構え #10」乃池

水彩イラストシリーズ「東京店構え」の10枚目で、とりあえずラストです。今回のお店は谷中にある寿司屋さんです。日本家屋的な部分とデザイナーっぽいフロントの組み合わせがスゴく好きで描いてみました。 気が向いたら似たイラストのシリーズをまた描きたいですが、もっと横長のフォーマットにして違った建物の種類にしたいです。(銭湯とか)今のところアニメスタジオの作業が多忙ですが、また新プロジェクトをつくります! 残りのメイキング動画を編集したらアップ予定です。このシリーズをご覧になって、シェアしてくれてありがとうございました!

We’re finally home after a full day of Cubs’ victory celebrations. 

What a day!

While positioned at the intersection of Halsted and Addison to watch the parade go by, I could’t help but think about the old 42nd police headquarters on the NW corner. 

The building was completed in 1907 - one year before our last World Series win.
