Friends, what do you imagine from a word, "mattress"? My image is a "pillow fight" from a mattress! Do you have a sweet memory about a pillow fight? I picked up that word from my American friend, when I stayed at her place ages ago. She had a very big family and many siblings. The youngest boy was so cute. We enjoyed a "pillow fight," hahaha!! Great fun.
In my illustration, an active and natural movement and a lively face expression are critically important. My daily sketches are wonderful references and inspiration resources. That's why I keep sketching all the time. A tomorrow's theme is amatch (or matchbox). Friends, Happy Painting!
Award winning fine artist, enthusiastic children's picture book illustrator, portraitist and event/conference sketcher, Sydney based. Greatest strength: "Empathic portraits". Spontaneous and beautiful. Outstanding speed and accuracy. In only a few minutes, my quick portraits capture models in any posture with any facial expression on spot. Figures appear lively and emotionally. My linguistic training enables me to analyse the text in detail and organise appropriate story boards for the target audience. Sociological methods and research skills are used to capture insights from a text. The work bridges between a text, reality and imagination. Style is broad from whimsical cartoons to fine art for multifarious subjects. Japanese naitve speaker. Enjoy my works in StyleFile
