Mixed media sketch of…

(The above image BTW is a digitally modified version of the original drawing below.)

…the exceptionally talented Japanese actor / actress Hitomi Tanaka playing the part of a call-girl.

My drawing or sketch was made after a selected still from the film, (I don’t know it’s title,) – just came across it while surfing the Internet – one in which, as always, Ms. Tanaka gives an accomplished performance.

She is a true professional: her work is her work, it is nothing more than her job, but nevertheless she gives of her best. She makes it clear that her work, the job she does, is not to be confused with who she is in her person.

Public and private.

It is the same for me, my work as an artist, making drawings and paintings of my fellow human beings, whatever their situation in life, is on public view, but I myself am a private person.

I give of my best, too, which is what being an artist means: no second-best, and I really couldn’t give a shit what people think. I’m not doing this to please anyone.


  1. “She is a true professional: her work is her work, it is nothing more than her job, but nevertheless she gives of her best.”

    And this to me is what makes her a great artist, the striving for improvement in all aspects: her acting, her movements, how she cares for her body, the confidence etc. Seeing her progression through the years is beautiful.

    I don’t know if you’ve ever seen this interview with Hitomi and her good friend and colleague Anri Okita, but it is the best interview of her I know. She really lets loose and talks from the heart, where you get to see “the girl behind the camera” as it were. Her and Anri have a similar drive, which explains why their collaborations have been so powerful and remain the top ranked of JAV videos. Anyways, I know you are a busy man but here is the link in case you care to check it out!

    Thank you again for your work!

    1. Just checked the interview out. Yep, very good, enjoyed that. Two very nice totally normal healthy girls. Full of fun and laughter. I shall have to take a look at the video in question, in which they appear, the one they initiated. There must surely be many scenes worth sketching / painting. Thanks for directing my attention to it. Maybe I’ll watch it again in due course.

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed the interview! The code for the video in question is MIRD-150. In my mind it is one of her greatest works, lots of variety in the scenes.
