Otaru Crawl

Hello Folks,
I went to OTARU CITY.
Otaru is a city of Hokkaido that is famous in a canal.

This is "TABACCO shop"
There was a small window in a Japanese tobacco shop and purchased a cigarette at the window.
There are few such shops recently.

This is a lot of antennas and an apartment of the wall which cracked.
Since there are many apartments which have adopted the set antenna, there is little such scenery in recent years.
Moreover, Japan is a country with many earthquakes. The numerousness of the cracks of this building is serious.
Antenna apartment
When I saw sky, I found this Street Light.
The spiral design was very beautiful, and the portion of glass made the "float" consider and thought that it was an apt design to Otaru currently reflected in response to a marine benefit.

This is "a moneylender's advertisement" often seen in the country town in Japan.
A wooden building and this wooden signboard exist like a set without knowing why.
I am an alley maniac.
If a thin dark alley is found, a photograph will surely be taken. And I like seeing the empty clipped by the building.
This place call to "HANAZONO" area.
There are not "Horizont and verticality" in this place!!
A countless electric wire is connected with a signboard and each is freely attached in the wall.
However, it is a place very interesting as a motif of a sketch.
Have a fun:)

I really like the 2nd illo and how you left the area white to give the details of cracks in the wall. Nice sketches all around Marty!

Hi, thanks
I used uni-ball SIGNO Erasable Gel.
I draw a line with this pen and delete a line of a pen with an eraser after having painted with a picture in watercolors.
