Keep your hope up high

This image is for upcoming charity art event for Japan. I chose "Hope" as the theme among others.
Hope they accept my work! Recently, I use computer for coloring final images, and I enjoyed Gouache a lot. But I used a cold press papper for this one today and this paper didn't work well for gouache. I struggled a little bit. Maybe hot press works for me.

By the way, I went to see ophthalmology doctor yesterday, because I was sick last weekend and Monday. Why not a physician? Because it started with vomit ( sorry! ) and ended with ache from right eye. Am I ok? The Doctor said the right side of optic nerve that was damaged two years ago starts acting again. She recommended me to take 2 pills of Omega3 every day.
My dear friends who use a computer a lot, please take Omega3 before your eyes get damaged!

This is my first strip cartoon in my life. I didn't even think I made a cartoon strip, but it was really fun and good experience. I don't know anything about a cartoon strip except Peanut, but I tried my best. This is for Chopstics NY advertisement. When you get a chance, please take a look at it.

The Earthquake and Tsunami really broke my heart. Thank you for your warm consideration for my family and friends in Japan. I believe Japan and Japanese will overcome this disaster in the future with many helps and thoughts from all over the world. I've talked to my parents just now via Skype. During the conversation, there was a big one came again. My house through the camera was very shaken. What I concern is seismic intensity 3,4,5 are not taken seriously now. People call it "aftershock", but it still 5 or 4. It's still enough big. I experienced only 4 in my life and I know how it was scary. Please please no more disaster...

I am going to participate in this charity exhibition for Japan.
