A to Z #25: Y is for Year in Japan

yearhinjapanFor the last few years I’ve been very interested in collecting art books from the various sketch artists out there. Examples would include books by Danny Gregory, Tommy Kane, Florent Chavouet, etc. One of the books I specifically requested for Christmas last year, after staring at it on Amazon for quite some time, was A Year in Japan by Kate T. Williamson.

Williamson draws memorable elements of her time in Japan and writes short paragraphs to accompany them. Her style is quite delicate compared to other artists, and I love how she focuses on small items rather than large views (though I also enjoy large views). Her ability to create the patterns she sees makes me terribly jealous in an artist respecting another artist kind of way. This is definitely a book I’ll flip through time and time again.
