Japanese Album Vol.01

Finally!!! After 2 months, my first Japanese album moleskine is done! The London Tube project is finally done

I've always been complaining not have enough time to draw, where did all my time gone? I spend average 70 minutes a day being in the tube staring at strangers, so I figured I might as well draw them. It's been hard and weird trust me, how would you feel if you know someone stares at you every 5 seconds? I donno, I've never been stared. Some of them would be very kind and nicely pose for me, many of the others would just pretend they were not aware by simply closing their eyes or starting to read, where few of them would just move away... I only draw the person right in front of me, I guess it's less obvious that I'm staring. Some of these sketches are really bad, like... REALLY BAD! Wrong proportions, extra shoulder/arm, or missing head and feet:( Oh well, I did my best, hope you guys enjoy it too. I think I'll have to do at least 10 books to be able to see the improvement, in the mean time I'll start my second book :)

Here is the link of the long scan I did of the Book, as well as these pages below:

These are some stuff I did over the past few weeks, just didn't have the chance to upload them. Not the best sketches, wish I can get out more and do more of them, but sadly here in London the weather's not been always pleasant in weekends. Now that it finally is, I'm too busy watching world cup :P

Went Sketching with Edison 2 weeks ago when he's here in London with me.

I always got caught up in details and ended up never finish the whole picture, so I timed myself on this one for 10 minutes from across the street and this is it.

Another timed sketch and somehow I managed to get the prospective totally wrong. Oh well, it's the corner pub I visit at least 3 times a week. It's just around the corner from where I work. Everyone from work goes there. We call it the "Golden usual" place.

The lazy man playing his game on Sunday.

I'm so excited that I'm almost done with the Japanese album project that I started 2 months ago. I think within a week or 2 I'll upload what's actually in it :D YAY!
