Last Friday I watched Hideyuki Watanabe compete in the eastern Japan newcomer's tournment. This was his fourth victory in the tournament. If he wins his next fight he will be the super fly tournament champion. Here you can see him with his brother, Takayuki Watanabe, who is an awesome artist. I'm looking forward to his next fight!

While in Tokyo I stopped by to check out Caricature Japan's Asakusa shop. It is in a great location, and is the coolest booth by far. I got a sketch, you can see below, by Yuta Honma, who you can see above. You can see more of his great stuff at http://hon-maburo.blogspot.com/
Caricature Japan was having an exhibition of themed artwork and doing live sketches for a nearby for a comedy film festival. Kage, Sousuke, and Shiori were all there. Here you can see Kage doing a nice sketch with some of the art in the background.
I was lucky enough to end up with my second sketch by Kage. A good art day! You can see more of his work at http://blog.livedoor.jp/donkage/. Good stuff.
