There’s been a terrible lack of update, to be honest I spend most of the time at work in Akasaka or freelance from home, leaving me very little time in everything. I guess because I’ve been and worked here before I’ve gotten used to it. I’m going to but post a ask or suggestion post later on, anyway, here are some pictures!

Second week here now, sorry for the lack of updates, the jetlag really has taken its toll on me. Living basically at the Shibuya crossing incase any of you guys are around and want to grab a bite. The office had a lovely welcome party for me first weekend, it was really nice there was so many new people there. Work is really close from home, its 15-20 min away from door to door which seems to be light speed by Tokyo standards, heard an hour is the average here. The job is really wonderful, my hours are flexible so I come and go depending on the project, right now I’m working with the japanese band Apogee. Me and the boss are working on the scenography for their comeback show in Tokyo and two of their music videos. Parallel with that I’m going to do research on japanese design and pop culture, it will later be collected in a book before I leave.

Teaches of Peaches
Artwork for the upcoming Fangamer Attract Mode - X show, I’ve always thought that Princess Peach should’ve moved on from being saved and get some revenge for all the time she spent in those castles, I like to think that each castle had their own type of princess. Unfortunately I wont be able to attend but if you’re in town make sure to stop by.
