When I was a bit younger I saw Honey and Clover and fell in love with the setting. I felt that I wanted to be a background colorist. At the same time I didn’t know much about color, more so environments. It’s just one of the many things that I wanted to be (apart from being a musician, a shop owner or a professional hair cutter haha…). Here’s a small attempt to do environments. I find them really difficult to do. Light sources all over the place and I don’t know which colors to use! People who have a knack for environments are genius.
This place is based on a restaurant located a few streets away from our apartment in Fukuoka back in 2010. I decided to go out alone one day to take photos of buildings. The weird messy ones are my favorites. The drawing was made over a year ago but I never painted it until a few weeks ago. Sometimes it takes months for me to pucker up the courage and say to hell with it, let’s mess it up! 日本に戻りたい。
