Hello. I am Emiko Higashino.

Morning and night time have become a little chillier these days. I am quite sensitive in the cold weather so I started drinking special alcohol drink to keep my body warm.

Our portrait corner had such a busy summer and now it’s calmer as busy period is over.
We do copic maintenance every year around this time. Copic is a high quality oil based markers which is used by many famous manga artists. We usually use refilling ink when the ink is gone so we did a big maintenance on the museum closure day.
We refilled ink and wiped outside pen and inside the pen cap. There were 300 pens to clean and it took us 4 hours. Now the pens look new and making us even happier to draw! I feel like I’m drawing better than usual…!

Please come and see how we are drawing portraits!
