This is an old fashioned sake shop located in Omiya, Japan. I drew it on my lunch break so I didn’t have a great deal of time. In my work, I often overwork the details and I find that I am timid about using color. This was my attempt to consciously try to break away from these tendencies. I used Pitt Art Pen, Copic Multiliner Pen, and Watercolor.

I went back and visited Neko Kaigi again in Kyoto to get my cat fix. It was a busy Sunday and a rainy one, so the place was quite busy. I had time for a coffee and this quick sketch while I watched the visitors and cats interacting.
