Another green smoothie and my favourite Japanese illustrator

Good morning! How is it Wednesday already? Time really does fly (on a jet plane) but today, I ain’t complaining because in exactly 23 days, my sister and brother-in-law are coming to visit me in JAPAN (not that I’m counting or anything). I’ll be honest, I’m rather homesick.. I miss Christchurch. I miss the atmosphere of the Riccarton Bush Farmers’ market, I miss C1s vegetarian sliders, I miss Cafe Valentino and my CV family and I even miss my stupid dog’s (sorry, my SISTER’s stupid dog’s) non-stop barking. Oh and my friends and my mama and my papa as well.

I have two things for you on this gloriously cold Winter day:

First, another green-smoothie recipe:
1 banana
1 kiwi
handful of kale
handful of spinach
3/4 cup of water

Notice the fruit sticker.

Next, my favourite Japanese illustrator:
Mitsuie Yusaku

Someone once said, good art is that which reflects a little or a lottle of yourself. Well, actually I just said that but I’m sure someone once said the equivalent. I first came across Mitsuie’s work in an adorable stationary shop at Osaka station and his illustration (below) of a lady with a top bun writing on a large desk with an open drawer and a hot cup of tea by her side instantly reminded me of myself. In other words, I could relate. That’s the whole point of art isn’t it?

Below are a few of my favourites but if you’d like to see more of Mitsuie’s work and consequently, a piece of yourself in his illustrations, visit Mitsuie’s website by clicking his name.
