Tadahiro Uesugi Did It Again! -----Sketchtravel Auction Official Poster

One of the Sketchtravel artists, Tadahiro Uesugi from Japan made a beauuuutiful illustration for the official auction event poster.  If you know Brussels, where the auction will be held on October 17th, you may recognize this street corner.  Yes, indeed.  Tadahiro conducted an extensive research using Google Earth to be as accurate to the real street without having to visit as he could.  What a professional! 

Those who are not familiar with Tadahiro's work, check out his website.
He is one of the most influential illustrators in and outside of Japan. 
Of course, his page in the Sketchtravel book is simply stunning!(and a rare piece done traditionally since he paints digitally mostly for his work)

Sketchtravel is to benefit Room to Read, an international charity dedicated to increasing child literacy in developing countries. Our goal is to build one library ($20k) and sponsor one local children's book publishing ($15k).
There are so many ways you can help!
