VJ Captures the Moment With Live Illustration

Shantell Martin is a VJ in Tokyo. Trained as an illustrator in the UK, she moved to Tokyo in 2004 and started drawing at live events. Initially, she was drawing on paper and having those images projected onto the wall – but when a club asked if she could draw at one of their parties, she started experimenting with drawing on a Wacom Tablet.  She has since evolved into using a wireless tablet slung from her shoulder, so she can wonder through the crowd and illustrate the scene – each line drawn to the beat and simultaneously projected onto the walls, the crowd, or even the main act.  Her style is so entertaining, it often steals the show.
