I studied graphic communications at university and I learned photoshop and illustrator. So I know the basics of digital drawing. But it’s too easy to achieve a sort of pseudo perfection with digital art. As insane as it makes me, I love the possibilities for imperfections in the paper. It makes me a more diligent artist and in my own insane way a more “perfect” artist.
I also paint but with painting you can cover the imperfections of the canvas or whatever surface you are painting on with layers of paint.
The simplicity of drawing forces me to be focused. I love the purity of the paper and the strength of the pencil drawn line. That’s why I draw. That’s why my passion is paper and pencil.
My personal insanity is an obsession with perfection. As you know I’m working on a Yuko Oshima portrait and I’ve been working on it for about a week now. I bought a new drawing pad just to work on it. 24 sheets. I’ve gone through 10 sheets already for this one portrait. Now here’s where I go crazy. About half the sheets I trashed I never even drew on. Nope, the sheets had “imperfections”. Basically little flecks of dirt somehow embedded in the paper itself. Some fairly obvious, some I’d call microscopic. I’m sure the average person wouldn’t see them, but I see them. The worst is when I’ve seen them after I’ve started drawing. That’s what happened today. I started my 3rd attempt and was making progress when I noticed a little speck on the area where Yuko’s cheek was. Sometimes I can live with it because the speck would disappear within the drawing but this one was in a area that I knew I wouldn’t be able to hide it. So I trashed the drawing. Nothing wrong with the art but the paper was flawed. You want to know the best part? I’d already been working on the drawing for about 6 hours. But I threw it away because of a tiny little speck only I could probably see.
Oh well I’m crazy.
The good news is attempt #5(#4 had a imperfection where the bridge of Yuko’s nose would be)… #5’s paper looks good and better yet the drawing feels good.

Three years have passed since the Tohoku Earthquake and Tsunami. However there are still thousands of people living in the aftermath of this catastrophic disaster.
AKB48 and the 48 Project have been supporting those who have been affected since May 2011, and to this day have been visiting those places struck by this disaster, to raise awareness and give hope and happiness to those still suffering.
As Iwata Karen, who moved from the Tohoku region and joined AKB48 in order to help her hometown, had said
“The ‘today’ we live in, is the ‘today’ that those who lost their lives would have wanted to live in.”
The 48 Project will continue to support “For Someone” who needs our help.
