So after we left Seoul, we flew to Tokyo. This is a city I never thought I would actually get to visit, but there I was. It was like spending a week in an optimistic vision of the future; A spotlessly clean metropolis where subways arrive silently and exactly on time, everyone is well-mannered and considerate and the sushi is fresher than fresh. As an illustrator, I couldn’t get enough of the cartoon characters you find on every storefront, warning sign, and advertisement (I’ll post those next week). Every nook and cranny of the country seems to be carefully designed for maximum aesthetic perfection. I spent 6 days in a state of perpetual amazement and confusion. The best part is, we were sent there by Lush to plan an art event later this year… so I’ll be back soon!
