Geisha


Another Japanese-themed illustration that I did out of excitement.

Since I planned my trip to Japan, I can't help but to keep searching for Japan-related information. The other day, I was browsing through the catalog on my library app to see if there's anything good to read. I ended up borrowing bunch of Japanese-themed books and one of it is the novel "Memoirs of a Geisha" by Arthur Golden.

I remember it was such a big hit back then and they even made a film version out of it, but, you know what, I had completely no idea what "Memoirs of a Geisha" was all about until I decided to borrow the book. For sure I know it's about Geisha, but I never really know what happened.

I haven't finished reading it yet but I'm excited to see how it went. Nowadays I'm really busy so my reading time is becoming smaller and smaller. In fact, I can only read after 10PM or before I sleep which is usually when I already feel tired and end up reading for only 15 to 30 minutes.



However, I managed to make a quick sketch and draw this one morning. I wonder if I'll ever meet a real Geisha when I'm in Japan.
