Speed Sketched People of Tokyo by Hama-House
Rarely do I write two posts in a row about the same person, but as I was digging through the work of Tokyo-based illustrator Hama-House for my previous post I discovered the artist’s Instagram account.
As I quickly learned, Hama-House, when not doing commercial work for TV ads and magazines, enjoys doing speed sketches of people in Tokyo like commuters, musicians and café dwellers. Hama-House quickly sketches a contour, fills in a few details and then adds a final touch – an Instagram photo of the subject in the background of the drawing.
