New “Safety” page / 「安全」のページを作りました

Please note, in the horizontal black menu above, I have created a new “Safety” page. Creative designing is not all that I care about. I do care about safety of my customers as well! 上の黒い横棒のメニューで、「安全」の新しいページを作りました。クリエイティブなデザインだけが、私の気にしていることじゃあ、ございません。お客様の安全も、気にしております!

(;;; >_<) "> —–

Rush writing jobs keep coming in to me, while the “clinging dampness” of Tokyo’s atmosphere is punishing me —  in a way, I’m sick yet at work — So, I might need several days before I make my next post. … Continue reading

Don’t disregard ball-p pens / ボールペンもバカにできない

When I go out for, say, a meeting and I don’t think I have time to make a sketch on the way — that’s when I go out without my usual sketchbook and pencils. Alas, on my way back, I come across a scene … Continue reading

A clothed life form looking beyond / 彼方を見つめる着衣の生命体

Below, on June 26, with some courage, I posted a clumsy 15-min croquis, from the late 1980s,  of a nude model, depicted as a “life form in time/space looking beyond”  — a “perspective” I already had back then. Now, to … Continue reading
