Mariya Suzuki

Illustrator in Tokyo

A Sunday

PRESENTED ON FEB 24, 2016
IN TOKYO @ VOL 133

“I’m a little late, so by the time I get there everyone's a little tired and all the food is gone. so I'm drinking by myself –this big can of asahi super dry– and I’m trying to talk to them.”

In A Sunday from PechaKucha Night Tokyo’s 133rd volume speaker and Illustrator Mariya Suzuki tells the story of an ordinary day in a fantastic life!. Sunday, February 7, 2016 was a typical day in her life that could be illustrated in 20 drawings– drawings that could be described as anything but typical! See Mariya put on her shoes, space out at a cafe, meet some people, and get drunk and sleepy towards the end of the night... all through the “lens” of her fantastic drawing style.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Friday, March 4th, 2016.

APPLAUD THIS!
