Early in August the annual Tenrikyo Picnic was held at Kapiolani Park.

I was having a fun chat with my friend Yuki-chan, who’s also a creative (she designs nail art), about what I want to do in life.

Out of the blue I blurt out, 

“I WANNA DRAW!”

“Did you say you wanna draw?” someone said behind me.

It’s Big Jay!

I said “Yeah!” and showed him my travel sketchbook. “You draw everyday?”

“Yup at the bus stop, while waiting for the bus!”

“Ok cool, I’m looking for someone to draw my album for me, do you wanna do that?”

I listened to his song, “Rhythm Going Down” and closed my eyes.

I saw people…some dancing, some just standing around a bonfire. At the beach.

There’s this one girl, who really gets into the groove.

At first I thought I wanted to just show that camaraderie.

Later on, I looked at it again and felt like something’s missing. It’s so flat.

So I added a backdrop of the sky, the moon and the ocean. I also wanted it to look like, the viewer can join in, too.

It’s not just the people, but also the ambience of the surroundings –

in Nature, one can also feel the rhythm.
