My first illustration to go on a book cover! A song book published by Ongakunotomosha. Music by Kensaku Tanikawa, lyrics by Wakako Kaku. I am very thankful for Mr. Kensaku, who asked me to do this and convinced the publisher to use my illustration!
I had a really good time at the book cafe, Wildbunch the other day. Saw the saxophonist Sachi Hayasaka’s trio, TReS, and the drummer Kosmas Kapitza play. Their jazz, full of energy, vibrates the air and pushes me forward.
Forgot to post these pictures from the group show last month at Recto Verso Gallery in Nihonbashi, Tokyo. I was lucky to be part of it! I got to show my work along with those of Seki mari, Noriyuki., and Tsukiboshi Kairi. Thank you!
