I've been busier than normal this month, but I've finally gotten around to uploading some more sketches.
These range from January to September 2010. In that time, I had what was probably and hopefully will remain the most intense experiences of my life. The most intense being that I was diagnosed with Hodgkin's lymphoma and then had to spend a little over half a year doing chemo. My drawings slowed down considerably during this time, mostly because I was often to sick to go out, or because the residual pain from chemo made it hard to hold anything in my hand. Still, I did get some drawings in when I felt a little better.
Continuing from the last post, here are some more things that I had scanned but neglected to post.
The first sketch is from my NYC sketchbook in 2009, and the rest are postcards that I sent to some of my art buddies. The postcards were drawn on the train between Nakamozu and Izumigaoka on the Senboku-line while on the way to work.
So, I'm back after a VERY long absence.
I don't want to spend a lot of time on why I haven't been posting, but I will say that one big reason was that I was battling cancer for most of 2010. ...I guess that's probably a bit shocking, but I've been in remission for the better part of a year.
Also, I moved back to the United States in 2011 and I think now I'm just starting to get back into my normal groove.
Despite all that, I haven't stopped drawing (though my output has definitely slowed down here and there).
Anyway, I won't bore you with my life story...On to the sketches!
I have a lot of catching up to do, so I'll be posting sketches starting from the last time I posted...which was 2009. At the time, I had gone to visit NYC from Japan for the summer. So here are a few more sketches from that sketchbook.
