Studio Takeuma from Kyoto Japan

Those of you that use Flickr might recognize his sketches but I wanted to introduce Takeuma-san from Kyoto Japan. I just love the short capture of thoughts he includes in the sketches he does.
Here's a few samples of his work with a rough translation of the story captured in his sketches.

Hope you enjoy and be sure to check him out at Flickr!

2014 January 2nd: Happy new year. There was a man with a red suit case either going or returning from a trip. He had a lot of presence and also looked really happy. I had eye contact with him a few times while I sketched him. He knew I was sketching him but he let me go. Thank you very much.

2014 July 24th: There was a person working standing up with a Mac in one hand looked like his shoulders were getting tense. A seat opened up so he sat down and continued to work on the computer. The bow tie looking thing is his headphones.

A little boy kept on calling for the tigers attention so the tiger came over over real close and the little boy started crying. "What do you want me to do?" I felt like this is what the tiger was saying.

2013 November 19th: Kyoto Zoo. How the tiger walks: Right front leg -> Left rear leg -> left front leg ->right rear leg

 2014 January 9th: The weather was nice in Kyoto but was gray when I got to Tokyo. Lots of people had their umbrella's on the Yamanote train. It looked like it was going to start raining any moment but I was going to go back to Kyoto quickly and I wasn't going to let it rain - was what I was thinking but I'd be bummed if it was raining back in Kyoto. There was an elegant looking elderly gentleman that looked very much like a person from Tokyo. It turned out he got off at the same stop as me and took the bullet train. He was from Nagoya.

2014 August 19th: I once again went camping to Wakayama with Nariyuki Circus and came to the sea. The mountain and skies seen from inside the ocean was beautiful. I sketched while getting wet from splashes of water.
