I handed in all works on Friday. Everything is done-

It was soooo hard. like nightmare, but, anyway I've done it.

What I was doing until just before the deadline was this.

Picture scroll


Scroll usually starts from right hand side but, it is to show British people now, so it starts from left to make it easy to understand the timeline.

The artwork is 5 meters long.

I enjoyed drawing this very very much. really enjoyed.

But making it into a scroll was so hard job. There are many process, anyway, it was hard job..

I couldn't finish it without people's help.
Special thanks to Mami & Natsumi.

While finishing this, I was writing three 500-word statements.
I was exhausted but had lots of things to say, then I could have done them for 3-4 hours.
But I didn't check after writing. worry about that..

Anyway all done.
After animation's finished, I was thinking not to do the scroll once. But I feel it's finally done well. I'm pleased.

Saturday was London Zine Symposium.
Me & Chie helped ZEEL's workshop there. Kids draw at the space and he'll make zine with them.
His son Orson, Darryl and his son Noah were there as well.

Not so many kids came, but Orson spend the whole time to draw at the event.
Good boy. I like him.

Orson was interviewed.
He wasn't shy, spoke a lot.

I brought badge machine.
Many people made their badges.

I like children's cheek.
Especially from this angle.

Elephant Parade - at locations

I went to see the elephants.
Pink one was in a park in Hanover Square.

People who were talking just in front of it.

already scared-

with the one by VANITY FAIR.

This is the miniature replica.

That's funny! funny funny & nice!
It's painted by someone's hand so the design looks very different.
love this face.

I wanna get one but it's expensive...
hope I could get one for free.

Another elephant.

As you walk out from High Street Kensington station,

It's just on opposite side.
looks lonely.
