Wow.. It's still hard to believe I've been to Japan and back. From what I've heard, you're supposed to feel like the world is bigger but I feel like Japan is only a walk around the block, it seems so close! I wish I could show you guys the photos, but during the trip my phone ran out of space and so I had to start storing them on my friend's computer. I'll need him to send them to me before I can upload them, myself. So later on I will show you guys each significant step of the trip (if you'd like me to, that is.) It feels so weird to be back on my computer after nearly a whole month of being away..

It has been amazing, the only other country I've been to is Australia, and that's when I was 16 years old, traveling with my family. Japan is the furthest I've been from home so I got pretty homesick at times, the place was so beautiful though, I enjoyed my trip so much! Every part of the place felt like I'd entered a Ghibli film :heart: My friends and I visited all sorts of locations, including Disney Sea and Universal Studios, but I'd have an easier time explaining with photos to go with it. Once I get my mitts on those photos I will share more of my adventure with you guys =) For now I just wanted to let you know I've returned safe and sound, and I'm ready to upload some art. I have a commission I wasn't able to finish before leaving so I must get on that. 

While I was traveling I did have you guys in my thoughts, how have you all been during my absence? :hug: I've missed this place! I missed my tablet and computer too, I was so itching to draw that I ended up buying some art supplies so I could let off some steam. I realized this trip brought about a blessing in disguise, my ability to draw traditionally again! You see, after years of drawing on my computer I got into the bad habit of manipulating the images using the tools in Photoshop, I lost all confidence to draw on paper. But during my trip I got rather desperate, and I was so inspired by the environment of course, I needed an artistic outlet. I would bring my drawing supplies and hang out in the cafes with a nice hot chocolate while I sketched away. I was shaky at first but I got the hang of it in no time. I've always greatly admired artists and the risks they take while using traditional media, I hope to continue drawing traditionally and improve this way. Perhaps I will take turns drawing digitally and traditionally so I don't lose the hang of either. 

I intend to upload this artwork so you guys can view it =) The shame is I don't have a scanner so the quality won't be as good, I've had to use my phone's camera. The shots have come out rather well, I made sure the lighting was decent. I've got to organize the artwork in Photoshop first though, I look forward to seeing what you guys think of it! :excited: Drawing on paper again brings me back to when I was a kid, even though I've done this before, it feels like a whole new step for me in my journey as an artist. I hope I continue to be this brave :iconsweatplz: 

It still feels surreal that I'm home after such an eventful trip, I'm still recovering from jet lag actually. This experience certainly has opened my eyes. I don't want to sound too ambitious, but I've considered living in Japan, and not just since this trip, but for years it has been an idea. I took this trip so I could find out what Japan was like, if it really is the sorta place I'd like to stay, I gotta admit I've fallen in love. Most of the people there were so kind to me, and the culture is amazing, the fact they still work heavily with 2D animation makes me happy. The things they create over there and the pride they put in their work inspires me, I want to be surrounded by that sort of work ethic. My brother learned japanese and he lived and worked as an english teacher in Japan for a year, he lent me this little phrase book which I referenced often during my trip. I've studied the tiniest bit of the language, I'd be interested in taking a language course. What do you guys think the best step would be for someone like me who wants to move to Japan? =)

I'll wrap it up for now, I don't want to give you guys TOO much to read! I will make another update once I get my hands on those photos :heart: Thanks for reading! :hug: Take care~
