Hi all, long time no see.
I noticed that my views is higher when I write the blog less formal. Will do my best to keep all you interested. How have my holidays been? well it was busy, least to say. We had some artist friends from Sweden visiting for a little bit more then a week. They helped me a lot with the project. Especially my old mentor gave me valuable assistance.
The 3d animatic looks better then anticipated, still scheduled it for some more feedback. But that can wait for a bit.The texture problems is solved feels like everything is running smoothly now. With the title text and everything the film landed
on a solid 2minutes.
The new years eve was magic and my love for Tokyo and the japanese increased. We started with some sweet thai food in Shinjuku. Impressed my swedish mates, talked thai with the waitress and the chef was happy to talk Lao with me. We planned first to go to a Jazz club, but they were full. So we went to a Rock club instead for the countdown, it was a amazing and so fun 🙂
After that, we took a walk. Around 7 A.M. we went to the meiji temple. Wash our hands in a traditional way, we never went in for prayers out of respect for another mans religion. We took a walk around it. It was full of people. Intresting to see how different people celebrate the ending of the year.
Akihabara showed a lot of modern japanese art in the form of manga and toys, we walked and watched for hours in this area. Needles to say I could spend more hours. I guess for most japanese that this is a everyday view and may not see this as something special,
but for people living in the other side of the world… well this was fascinating. Picked up a lot of insperation.
I do not own this picture, but here is a link on one of the toys. www.kawaiikakkoiisugoi.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/IMG_5311-800×533.jpg
We also took the chance to visit a japanese art exhibition at Tokyo metropolitan art museum, that day was the last day they showed western art. They even had a Van Gogh painting! To see how japanese viewed western art changed some of my art perspective. For instance they considered a lot of the middle eastern art to be part of the western art, it is a great logic in that point of view. Also fun to compare the japanese art and the western art.
Taking pictures is prohibited.
Tokyo tower was a height you should not miss when visiting tokyo.
This is all from me today! Will update with a picture or two as soon as possible!
Thank you for reading.
