Comic 1 - Arana's Story


Comic of a sort

I've been having this idea for a while of drawing a light-hearted comic that records some of the happenings incidents that occur to foreigners in Japan, which had somehow stuck to my memory. I had been an absolute lazy-ass when it comes to doing it. Today, finally I went and made the title page! *gives herself a high-five*

It's not a very skilled comic, but I hope everyone who lives in Japan can relate to it and it can give you a chuckle! It features alternate universe versions of some of the friends that I know from real life. Here is a introduction of the main characters:

it's so nice to dream~

LOFT cafe sketch

Some rough sketches done in LOFT.
I wanted to try drawing quickly. Maybe it was too quick.

Train peoples

 mom and boy.

Seeing from what they were wearing, I think these people were college students going to take recruit-exams. In Japan, if you're a senior in your college year, basically 70% of what you do is going to hiring exams and interviews all over the city.
They were all wearing black and white suits/shirt combo.

hipster and her grandma

 Hi guys! Long time no update. The weather is getting ridiculously hot and humid now. If you stand outside for more than 15 minutes, your clothes will get damp.

random illust of girls in Shimokitazawa from a bit ago. It's a district in Tokyo. Before I went there, let's say I didn't know it was possible to love a place this much. Being in Japan already quite feels like you're in hipster-land (vintage-styled shops everywhere, seeing dark rimmed glasses and goatees, men in shorts/skinny jeans, etc), being in Shimokitazawa is like being in the hipsterest of the hipster capital. The crowd is not as young and rawdy as in Shibuya or Harajuku, the people here are a mix of thrift-digging/shisha-smoking/freespirited 20-30somethings and their equally openminded grandmas and grandpas. 

 A lot of my drawings were done while festering on the couch of cute cafes in Shimokitazawa.

Granma was done on the train back. I messed up her right hand, she actually had a normal hand.
