Shinji Tsuchimochi’s 100 Views of Tokyo

Shinji Tsuchimochi's 100 Views of Tokyo
The name of Japanese illustrator Shinji Tsuchimochi’s series of drawings, “100 Views of Tokyo“, is of course a reference to the well known series of 19th century woodblock prints by Utagawa Hiroshige, “One Hundred Famous Views of Edo” (AKA Tokyo).

Tsuchimochi’s colorful, sometimes straightforward but often fanciful drawings of his home city owe as much to anime, manga and European and American comics as they do to Ukiyo-e prints, and therein lies much of their charm.
