Illustrator Florent Chavouet turned his 6 months in Japan into sketches of Tokyo life as seen through French eyes.
It became a book, Tokyo Sanpo (Editions Philippe Picquier).
Get a feel for Tokyo Sanpo with this 12 Page Sample.
He continues the adventure on his Florent Chavouet blog with a Daily Sushi illustration, the latest being Suchirurgien (June 24, illustration below from his blog). Chirurgien means surgeon in French.
You can find more of his creations on the Florent Chavouet site (in French).
If you are in Paris, his sketches are on display at the travel bookstore Itineraires at 60 rue St-Honoré until June 26.
