TBT in 1980 I spent time in Japan working on my thesis about Japanese art and Japan's National Treasures, also known as master artists. I just rediscovered this sketchbook from then; traveling around Tokyo, Izo, Kyoto, etc. with my handy marker pen. This is the Kanjiro Kawaii House where we slept on tatami mats and had a zen moment. Japanese art & design has greatly influenced my own work; who'd a thought this would reappear with all the memories it brings?
