Hoshi Coupe

As a part of my illustrated reportage project, I spent my Saturday afternoon sketching at Hoshi Coupe Berlin, a Japanese hair salon run by Mr Ohno. The salon was brimming with action, with the stylists hustling and customers constantly coming and going. Thanks for a fascinating drawing and interview session!

Such an Adult

One sweet day, I will overcome my irrational fear of making phone calls.

Radler Doesn't Count

Radler is a beer mixed with sparkling lemonade (50-50), so it doesn't reeaaaally count as alcohol, does it? Ahem. Anyway, this comic is old...because G and I have long since abandoned our alcohol-free-May challenge. So much for will power. The weather's been too nice to not sit outside for a nice, cold Bierchen.

Also, I'm sure you've noticed that I'm trying to draw myself a bit differently now. I've always worn glasses but I've been too lazy to draw them, and I'm also growing out my hair -- so yes, I'm trying something new!

Where Pigs Fly and Horses Puke


Just a little update about an illustration project I did at the end of last semester (I blogged about it really briefly in February). The course was called "Wildes Berlin" (Wild Berlin) and we had to illustrate animals in some relation to Berlin. I'm kind of obsessed with languages, so I decided to work with animal-related sayings/idioms in Japanese, English, and German. I selected sayings with similar meanings and visually combined them -- which is kind of what goes on in my linguistically confused head! You can check out the entire book here!
