Malta map and the working method


I went to Malta for last Christmas and I had this feeling of wanting to illustrate the place for a long time. So I did and it is uploaded on They draw and travel blog for 12th May post. I did some elements on a separate sheet of paper and put them together on computer but I think I might have preferred to work structuring all on a paper. Well, I don't know if the planning was better it might have been a different story.

去年のクリスマスにマルタへ旅行へ行った時から、いつかマルタ島のイラストを描きたいと思っていてやっと描いた地図。They Draw and Travelというブログの5月12日の日記に載せていただきました。いつもと違う、何枚かの紙に描いた部分的な絵をパソコンを使って一枚の絵にしたのですが、やっぱり実際の紙の上で作品を一つにする方が私には合っているのかなぁと思える作品になりました。

Inside a tree

New illustration I did. I was thinking of ideas for birthdays. Age or history of a tree can be told from growth ring inside a tree. Like trees, I wanted the aging for us to be also a story of experience and the journey taken in our lives. More stories there are to tell, more exciting you are. After all, getting old isn't too bad is it?
I want to be an exciting person with a lot of stories to tell.
