Illustrations for the Brochure of Diamond Telecom.co


A couple month ago, I did five-spot-illustrations for the brochures of Diamond Telecom.co, working with a designer and an art director from well design co., in Tokyo. Using pen and ink for lines and digital for colors for medium was my not recent style and it took me a while to get a tip.  Here is the final image and I am gladly showing you. Thank you.

数ヶ月前の事ですが、ウェルデザインのデザイナーさんからお仕事を頂き、ダイアモンドテレコムの企業内パンフレットのイラストレーション5枚を描きました。ペンとインクを使ってパソコンで色をつける描き方は最近やってなかったので感覚をとりもどすのに時間がかかりました。先月出来上がったパンフレットを頂きました!

Met two of my heroes!


It was a memorable and the very best day of 2016 yesterday for me! I had a lunch with two of my heroes and other talented illustrators in Tokyo. I haven't met and known Japanese illustrators living in Japan much and I had a great opportunity to exchange conversation with them. My hero, my mentor, and my sister (secretly in my heart) gave me her book before sale in Ireland! Also another hero gave me the box of cookies that he worked for the package illustration. They were all successful illustrators except me and I was a bit nervous before the lunch...but they were all friendly and the conversation with them encouraged me to work more and more. 
A illustrator friend of mine living in New York told me that success is different for everyone take yours as it comes and you will be there soon... yes, he is right. 
Personally I have having a hard time since last week, but the meeting gave me positive energy and I do appreciate for this great opportunity.

THE21

THE21というビジネス雑誌のイラストを担当しました。担当した記事は”ストレスゼロの英語勉強法”で、とても面白かったです。今、書店にならんでいるので時間があったら手に取ってみてください。
I took charge of illustration in the business magazine of THE21. The article of my illustration is "How to learn English without any stress" and I found it very interesting. This magazine is now on sale in book stores and I wish you to have a look at it, if you have a time.

Resort image


Here is the resort illustration I did for an organization last year, but it ended up as a killed job unfortunately. However, this image became one of my favorites in 2015. And I still have a good relationship with a wonderful art director who gave me this job. Oh, I need such relaxing vacation...

Happy New Year 2016!

SEASON'S GREETINGS AND BEST WISHES FOR THE NEW YEAR.
I WISH A YEAR FILLED WITH PEACE, GOOD HEALTH AND HAPPINESS!!

あけましておめでとうございます。
今年もどうぞ宜しくお願い致します。
2016年が皆様にとって幸多き佳き年となりますようにお祈り申上げます!
