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.
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.
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.
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...
