A cat is wondering in a poppy labyrinth

Hazy Sweet Pea

Sweet pea is one of my favorite flowers, 
because she is so modest and friendly. 
I mingled with my favorite flower and my favorite Japanese mountains in Nagano.  A mountain scenery from the top of mountain is hazy because of morning haze and air is so clear.  My eyes were watery with those beautiful morning mountain scenery many times. 

Yes, I am a nature lover and used to be a mountain (hard) climber. 

My Lily girl

The last summer vacation in my life is a week left.  
After moving out, I start Photoshop again. 
I am kind of a get a sense how to use it efficiently for my works.
I owe my private strict photoshop expert teacher! 
He uses photoshop as if he play a piano, so amazing! 

Amazing thing is that my dad asked me how to use Photoshop 
and I taught him through skype and e-mails. 
He is a quick learner! 

September has already visited here....

I am a cat lover. 
If you ask me of making a character, 
it becomes a cat naturally. 
Here it is.
I am a bit exciting using watercolor for making characters,
ink and pen are my favorite style though. 

I miss my cat, Yukichan.

monochrome wash drawing ( 墨絵)

When I was a child, I often visited my grandpa and grandma's house.
My grandma was very talented and smart woman.
She made haiku ( Japanese poem ), played Shamisen ( Three-stringed Japanese instrument ), and draw monochrome wash drawing, ( more than this! ).
Sometime, she served me a glass of wine ( even though I was an elementary school kid). 
I liked to sit next to her and draw drawing together. 
I still remembered that my grandma and I draw lobsters
 and she liked my lobster drawing. 
I tried to do same thing with water color,
but I found the differences from the one I made at grandma's house.
The difference is a lacking of momentum. 

By the way, my mom is a talented woman as well as my grand mother.
She plays a mandolin, guitar, and ukulele. 
I want to be like my grandma and my mom.

This is Fukurou.
Japanese like this bird, becuase Fuku means happiness. 
My uncle is a corrector of Fukurou  goods. 

Wait, this might be horned owl, not just a owl. 
In these days, I enjoy drawing animals with an ink pen!

Kirin sounds Japanese beer company, 
but we call a giraffe as Kirin. 
Kirin is one of my favorite animals and my favorite beer!

What is your favorite flower?

" what is your favorite flower? "
I might think over a while and ask
" Can I choose more than one?"
" Ok, I gonna choose Keshi flower ( Poppy ) for today! "
" but I may choose daisy, tomorrow! "

So many troubles cause to me since last week.  
Don't put me into the other's trouble! 
My mental and health conditions are so bad because of you and you! 
Today is the last day of my help.
J and I decide to move out to nicer apartment in the end of this month. 

This is the caricature of Lou Dobbs. I draw this when I escaped from this apartment and stayed at Bans and Noble.
