'Ozashiki (banquet)' 2011
Illustration from my final degree project about the hidden lives of geisha. The scene here is inside a tea house (ochaya) actually nothing to do with tea, you are more likely to be drinking sake here. Two geisha entertain at the table with drinking games and appreciative laughter. In the background the results of too much sake.
This image appeared in the 'Images 36' exhibition and book, curated by the Assocciation Of Illustrators to celebrate the best of British illustration.
