I went Akasaka for SketchCrawl 34th.
It was so cold rainy day!!
I'm sorry that I couldn't sketch outside. Hieda shrine was so beutiful, but I was stuck inside a Cafe. ^^;
Also, I sketched people in the subway.
I drew them as squirrels. You may think it's strange but it's the usual way for me.
By the way, I found that January 21st was the Squirrel Appreciation Day.

They picked up by bear mother in their childfood. They grew up and living near the mom in satoyama; woods near the village.
I made some friends for Kurorisu.
I think she's going to squirrel school that there are international students from the world.
I've not decided their names yet.
from the left;
Indian Palm Squirrel he's good at study,
Eastern Chipmunk she's active for sports or music
Japanese squirrel is Kurorisu
English Red Squirrel she's good friend of Kuro
California Ground Squirrel he's gentle chubby guy
He is Swinhoe's Striped Squirrel.
I know Swinhoe is the name who discovered this species but I think it fits squirrel name, don't you think so?
Swinhoe's Striped Squirrels are in China, Myanmar and Viet Nam.
