Sushi-zume (Packed in Like Sushi) by 

It is often noted that Japan is a land of contrasts. The austere, compartmentalised world of the traditional culture struggles to contain a wild, modern world of technology and foreign influences. Travelling by subway in Tokyo, it’s hard to believe that Japan is depopulating. Is this a country which is consuming itself?

    Thanks for your kind words. This particular illustration will be exhibited for the first time at “The Looking Glass”: exhibition, opening tonight! It will be a signed giclee print on bamboo fibre paper, framed with sustainable Australian timber.

    Thanks, vampvamp. It was initially hand-drawn with ink on paper, then digitally coloured with Photoshop. A similar workflow to comics.
