Random Ginza / Tokyo Crawl

Post by kumi matsukawa » Thu Jan 03, 2013 9:19 am

We had 3 international sketch friends that day: Richard from NY, Steve from Tennessee, and Ali from Pakistan.
We met up in front of Wako blg. one of the iconic building in Ginza and while all the members to show up, we drew the street view which were crowded with shopping bag- carrying people ( obviously they bought them at bargain) or those who were just about to go shopping...

Then after lunch, we spread to find something interesting to draw, Steve and I looked for somewhere to visit as a first visit of the year. We went to Mistukoshi department store on the 7th floor, there we found Shusse Jizo (Guardian Deity),and worshipped at it. Then found a nice table at the terrace, there we sketched until our meeting time.

Later 2 more friends joined us, in total 9 people roamed from restaurant to restaurant to find a table for 9. Then as is always the case, we spent time with fun sketch battle. We drew faces each other and exchanged them ( when we could) over the meal.

That was a short and busy sketchcrawl in the end. But we had so much nice times exchanging our secret of sketch gear, had good laugh.
Thanks for your company all! See you sometime soon.

Our Ginza Crawl was great fun, and we learned a lot from each other.
Here are some wonderful sketches (of me!) by members of the group.

Tokyo USK is a fantastic and talented group of sketchers that really know how to go all out sketching!
Thanks to Kumi for the masterful organization and Nora, Tetsu, Junichi, Mayuko and Miyako for their support.
I know that Steve, Ali and i were in very good hands.

We started out In front of the Wako Department Store in Ginza. It was the day after the new year-a holiday.

One of the more interesting places i found was outside a department store where a large group of people congregated to smoke. I called it the smoking tree.
