Manic doodler Keita Sagaki updated his portfolio with recent works and he appears to be shifting his focus to the USA. From afar, the 29-year old Tokyo-based artist creates work that appears to be fairly accurate sketches – nothing more, nothing less. But upon closer observation one realizes that each piece is actually composed of hundreds of cartoonish doodles that encompass entire canvasses.

Sagaki previously focused his efforts on recreating classical artwork like Greek sculptures and The Mona Lisa using wacky doodles. But his recent work would suggest he’s now seeking inspiration from iconic American landmarks like the Golden Gate Bridge, New York’s Times Square and the Statue of Liberty.
