When you’re travelling in a foreign city, the sights, sounds and aroma of your surroundings can be so beautiful that there’s an overwhelming desire to capture it in a way a photo never could. Next time you find yourself in this predicament, you might want to stop by a cafe and take out a pen like this artist, who captures the atmosphere of Tokyo beautifully with just some coloured pencils, pens and a humble paper coffee cup.
Mariya Suzuki is a Tokyo-based illustrator who likes to use the humble paper cup as her canvas. Taking a look at her beautiful works is like taking a trip to the best cafes around Tokyo. Here she is at Asylum Coffee Roasters.
