Street perspective in Tokyo in ballpoint pen and watercolor

This one i just did from google streetview – It’s really fun to explore the world with streetview – I were looking for a “historical city center” of Tokyo..

410 Portrait of Ted Cruz in watercolors

This is Ted Cruz – a newly announced candidate for the US 2016 elections – he’s republican and apparently “tea party” republican.

This cat’s called Chub-Chub! After drawing the horse and rider yesterday, Tom, who’s the photographer behind these pictures revealed to me that he’s got a cat-blog also.

I’ve been looking for crow photos these last three days. What a strange and beautiful bird! Finally I found a good photo on a blog called The drawing turned out good, but the colors are off.
