Asif Gill is a software engineer and artist whose longtime passion for the Japanese language and culture was enhanced by a 48 day sojourn in Tokyo, Japan in 2009. Armed with the luxury of free time, a sketchbook and pen, and his unique sense of humor and outlook on life, Asif spent his days and nights exploring the Harajuku, Shibuya, Shinjuku sectors of Tokyo and has documented his experiences in a forthcoming unique graphic travelogue, 48 Days in Harajuku, Tokyo. Asif’s sketches and stories bring to life the many odd encounters, unique discoveries and unexpected hilarity that he experienced as a foreigner trying to experience life as a local. He also publishes a weekly webcomic illustrating anecdotes of Tokyo life from a foreigner's viewpoint.
