Sketching everyday scenes in Tokyo
Hama-house captures stills of everyday life through a series of quick sketches
Hama-house (Tokyo) is known for designing and illustrating the art for magazines, books and Television commercials. On the side, Hama-house also takes time to sketch everyday activities in Tokyo’s hustle and bustle. While others are often picking up their iphones and androids to capture moments throughout the day, Hama-house draws out a notebook and pen to record it through sketching. The illustrator captures scenes of everyday activities through thin and thick lines and often shading, giving dimension to sketches. From a street artist playing his guitar to a still of a young lady sleeping soundly in the train, the illustrator has the ability to transform these seemingly mundane everyday sightings into comic and playful sketches. The sketches juxtaposed with the blurry reality in this series of photographs shows Hama-house’s interesting interpretation of the illustrator’s surroundings.
