A planned, small book containing more than thirty ink illustrations of Hokkaido scenery.

Based on a 2019 trip during which we visited Sapporo, Otaru, and Hakodate I'm making a small black-and-white only book of ink illustrations. Tying it to the 2019 Inktober event I'm planning to picture more than thirty Hokkaido vistas based on the many photos we brought back from the trip. All the pictures will be accompanied by English and Japanese texts and the whole thing will be topped with some additional content (explaining about tools, maps of our travel, etc.).
