Tim Smart: Shibuya River

Illustrator Tim Smart takes a look at the hidden waterways of Tokyo.

Last April, Tim Smart took up a creative residency at Japan Wonder Site in Tokyo. It was there that he made the Journey of the Shibuya River series, a collection of ink and pencil illustrations depicting the course of the hidden waterways of Tokyo. Smart's look at this little-known metropolitan waterscape serves as a reminder of the ingenuity of a city built partly on reclaimed land.
