A little kooky, a lot messy, and just a tad bit socially awkward!

Corner by yapi
Corner
Abandoned Elementary School, Tokyo

Full album can be viewed here.

So this one actually comes with a little creepy puzzle regarding a figure in the window. It's probably nothing, but it's fun to think about :D You can check it out here!

School's Out
Abandoned Elementary School, Tokyo


For the full album, please click here.

This month's exploration trip was to an abandoned elementary school in Tokyo :) It was my first time exploring in the middle of the night, and wow, I was pretty scared! But it had to be at night because I had to find a way through a fence :P

Sorry the picture's pretty grainy. All I use is an iPhone!

Aisatsu by yapi
Aisatsu
(All of my jail stories can be found in the Number 979 folder  in my gallery:))



Roll call comes right before we lay our beds out at night and right after we fold them in the morning.


To get ready for it, everybody kneels facing the front of the cell with our mini towels laid out in front of us, and hands on our knees, palms up. Then we quietly wait for the tantou-san to come, accompanied by the only male guard in the facility (who we call "aniki" -- which is the gangster way of saying "big brother").

Tantou-san yells out our numbers* and we have to prompty respond "HAI!" Then she gives us the cue to greet and we bow deeply as we yell "good morning" or "good night" along with Aniki.

When roll call is done, we take turns bringing our futons back to the futon storage room then they start bringing us our toiletries to our cells so we can wash our faces and brush our teeth :) Then it's time for Anri to sneak in some lotion and lip balm for me again!

*The only correct numbers in the picture are 979 (mine) and 913 (Emi's). I don't remember the rest, so I made them up :P

Arakawa by yapi
Arakawa
Sometimes I like riding my bike along the Arakawa river bank.

I started this self-portrait late last year, as an exercise in backgrounds. However, my hair got cut short shortly after so I kinda shelved it. Tonight my mind was doing the whole overthinking thing again about random things I shouldn't even be worrying about so I went ahead and finished it to get things off my mind.

I tried a Makoto Shinkai type of technique where you use a photo as a base and do a paint over. However, I planned the lighting a bit poorly and good god, I cannot render grass to save my life. Learned a few things, though. Now that my hair is short I need to do another one and hopefully do a better job~

Just wanted to say I love all your recent artwork.
I'd have felt like a stalker if I'd have comment on them all. XD
So well done, you're awesome and keep up the epic work! :P

Thank you so much! I was a bit worried that it would bore some people since my watchers are more used to me uploading full color works, but... Gotta draw what you wanna draw, right? I'm very happy you appreciate them! ^^
