Russell Stutler Summer 2005

Sketching Tokyo

Russell Stutler was born in Japan, but raised in America. Living in Tokyo with his wife and family, he documents every day scenes and people with a lively penstroke and quick brush. "Much of my work has been related to either graphic art or Christian ministry or a combination of both. Ever since I was in high school in the early '70s and saw a television program on the life of Leonardo Da Vinci, I have had a passion for sketching. I usually sketch in pen and ink or pencil, although lately I have been sketching mainly with a brush and ink and if there is time, I add watercolor." Russell oversees the Sketching Discussion Page and is the founder of, where visual artists share in Christian fellowship.
