Tokyo Comes To Life with Charming Illustrations

Japanese illustrator Shinji Tsuchimochi has been working on a series of one hundred drawings of Tokyo. They depict different places and aspects of the metropolis in a breezy and thoroughly charming style. [Images: Shinji Tsuchimochi]

As Spoon and Tamago points out, between 1826 and 1833, artist Katsushika Hokusai did 36 views of Mount Fuji. Taking inspiration from Hokusai, Tsuchimochi has been working on the series for the past few months. It's now drawing to a close, but here are some of my favourites.
