Rainbow Bridge Run

So I ran the Rainbow Bridge, a famous Tokyo landmark. It goes from somewhere near Tamachi to Odaiba, the man made island with the giant ferris wheel and stuff. I ran with my big camera. It wasn't so bad except i kept stopping to take pictures so I didn't really get a good run in. I guess there will be no more of that. its about a 10km round trip from my house. I love running. Even though I got hit by a taxi I still recommend running around your city, it's an awesome way to see what your city's got.



it gets dark here early. sunset time.





It's the best view you can get on a run on one side but then not so cool because then right beside you on the other side is this.



Rainbow Bridge. it's supposed to light up like a rainbow at night. Also when i got to the start you have to take an elevator up 7 stories to get up to the bridge and it was taking forever for it to come so i said, hey its only 7 flights ill just run it, only it turned out to be like 3 times more stairs per story. so instead of running up and turning twice and you're on the next floor it would keep running forever before i got to the next floor.



Fuji Television building in Odaiba.



I love boats. I wish i was chillin' on that rooftop deck.



What are these things?







these pocket bikes or whatever you call them crack me up.





a life on the sea, is that the life for me? it would be cool for a lil while i think. or at least a tokyo canal bum


I never drink soda. i saw this on someones blog and thought it would be awesome. It's roasted chestnut flavor. it was like mild pepsi. How cool would it be if the US market and consumers had the balls to have new limited edition flavors of every product every few months? that's what happens here and it's awesome. You can literally drink a new drink everyday for the rest of your life they come out with so many new flavors.



gachapin ramen. that's his side kick/partner mukku



drawings for a series of illustrations for a project i can't show yet. that's lil' bob raish on the right. I had to tone down his indigent little smile for the illustration.



I was psyched to finally find this building somewhere inbtwn Daikanyama and Shibuya.



went to an illustration exhibit in daikanyama put on by Giant Mango, whatever that is.







next i went to an exhibit in the Parco building in Shibuya. 2 giants here. David Choe and James Jean. both from LA. the exhibit was called L.A. Secret Studio. Gallery was small. wish there was more. I love the work these guys do and was happy to find out they were having an exhibition in tokyo. These 2 are david choe.



David Choe is Korean American. you can see him on the Vice magazine website hitchhiking around the world.



the last three are James Jean. he graduated from SVA. it seems like all the sucessful illustrators graduate from SVA. as for FIT.....



he drew these all from his head with no plan. super detailed pen drawings.
