Japan sketchbook

This has been an ongoing project for many months. I want to fill a whole Moleskine sketchbook and turn it into my own little encyclopaedia of Japanese culture. I've been doing a bit of work on it over the past week, so I thought I would post some of my favourite pages. It's about a third full at the moment, so it will be a long time before it is finished! I have lots more ideas of things to go in it, though.

Lovely coverage of Japan, crisp and colourful. I guess that Japan is deep under you skin. It happened to me too.
Thank you very much for sending to Moleskinerie Site

What a fantastic idea!!! Your sketchbook looks fantastic. A lovely way to get to know a country. I think I might just borrow your idea to re-spark my motivation.
Love your work too. Have had fun going through your blog. Will be back for sure.
