We just came back from a trip to Japan to visit Yuko's family.
Here are a some of the sketches I've done in my little Moleskine sketchbooks: mostly very quick ones as we ran around all the time.
I used a classic big marker (round tip) and a brush pen (love those ones!).

For those of you who haven't had a chance to donate for Japan yet, please don't forget that despite the fact that the Japan Tsunami story isn't making first page anymore it doesn't mean that the problem is over...
Between the thousands of people still missing, the food contamination problem ("Analysts expect a negative impact on export growth in the months to come" ) the people who lost their entire family, their home, or both, and the huge economic impact for Japan, it will take years to recover...
"More than 9,000 people have died in the disaster, thousands are injured and at least 12,000 are missing. Many people are living in evacuation centres as 14,000 homes have been destroyed and around 100,000 are damaged."
If you want to help (even if it is just a few pounds), here is the address for the British Red Cross Japan Tsunami Appeal:
And for those of you living in London, here is a piano concert where we will go with Yuko on the 30th of March: 100% of proceeds from tickets sales will go to the appeal. You can check it out here:
Thank you very much in advance...

Those sketches were originally done in one of the tiny Moleskine sketchbooks that I carry everywhere with me. Very handy to block out some quick ideas or just sketch anything or anyone without being noticed. I probably did those ones in the tube on the Northern line.
Tarzan wasn't one of the passengers though.
