Worn Out

Some more sketches from the subways of Osaka.

Living in Japan I've seen a whole new side of "tired."
I'm some how able to survive and get things done, but I'm just tired all the time.
Mentally fatigued, muscles worn, eyes droopy, every last inch of me is worn out.

And more than I, the people I see everyday often look exhausted...
All around me I hear words like "Tsukare" and "Shindoi" both words to express "tired," and both often heard and important vocabulary here.

So, witness my tired sketches.

Tough Beginning

More sketches!
So, in the beginning I had somewhat of a hard time being here in Japan. I guess it's a big jump as far as getting adjusted goes...everything looks like it won't be different, but it only appears that way.

Despite that, I still was able to get my sketches done. So here they are.

People on the train and the rest are scenes from a park in Nishiohashi I was in while waiting to get some business done with my apartment situation. Getting an apartment, by far, was the biggest hassle/hurdle to overcome in Japan. It's just ridiculous...

Old man sleeping. On the way to Morinomiya.

Older lady sleeping and a middle aged (maybe?) lady with her bag. En route to Nara to pick up a futon.
