2016 March Tokyo Trip! Pen Shows And Loot (Image Heavy & Unboxing Video)

Recommended Posts

Another year, another Tokyo trip! (Last years post and video.) This time, I had the pleasure of meeting Tinjapan, thank you very much for your guidance and company! I missed the opening of the Maruzen show, but made it for the Mitsukoshi opening. Shows are a lot more fun when you're with other pen friends. There's not a lot I can add about the shows that hasn't been said already, so enjoy the photos!

 

Maruzen Pen Show 1st Floor Layout - I was too excited and forgot to take photos of the Maruzen show, so have some sketch snippets from my travelogue

Thank you for the amazing positive responses! I'm glad I could bring some joy to you all. :)


Here are some shots that didn't make the final cut.
