An Artist’s Day in Tokyo

Spent Saturday running around Tokyo with another artist friend, Spendy Pencil! We had specific errands to complete but enough time for fun inbetween despite not meeting in Harajuku until 3:30 in the afternoon.

Out for a big part of the day and this is the only photo I took!! Love the perpective lines along with the blue/yellow/grey color combination.

I have continued to take macrophotos of my artwork and have a backlog of photos I’d like to see printed up. Spendy Pencil has two shows coming up soon so we started at Pictorico photo shop where we had discovered the perfect papers for each of our completely different styles of photography. We placed our orders and headed out to dinner.

Well, my dinner and her lunchtime, LOL!! A meal of papaya salad, Tom Yum soup, and Thai Iced Tea in Omotesando and we walked on to our next stop.

Sekaido is a 6-floor Mecca for art supplies and a great place to run into other art friends on their own art adventures around the city. It’s also a good place to find frames needed for artwork of any size. Spendy Pencil placed a special order to be completed in 90 minutes and we were off to Clouds Art + Coffee.

Our friend Erica was having a reception for her solo show in Koenji and her amazing illustration work again drew a big crowd that spilled out into the street. Congrats to her!!! I picked up a patch from an image which she drew and her partner, Shishunori, created the embroidered patch. I needed something to make my favorite Uniqlo hoody unique.

Stitched it on this morning, chose not to iron it as I’ll probably want to change it to another clothing item in the future.

Back to Sekaido to pick up Spendy Pencil’s frames and then back home. Spendy Pencil messaged that our art adventures came to almost 13,000 steps, 10 kilometers (6 miles)

Zipping on/off trains, inumerable stairs, and a great Saturday with friends!!

Start your own Tokyo art adventures at Clouds Art + Coffee’s upcoming exhibition all based around the color Green which includes @loriono_thespendypencil 💚📷✅
