Exploring London

I knew about this book but I hadn't bought it for a while. Until when I find myself going back to the same old places every time I go into London.
Finally I have bought this book called, "Tired of London, Tired of Life"
This book tells you London'd hidden delights - places to visit every day. One place a day for 365 days.

Now I am seeing different scenes of London. Here are two of the places we've been from the book.

最近、ロンドン市内に出ても、今まで行ったことのある場所にばかりまた訪れている自分に気づき、そしてそんな場所ばっかりで少し退屈していたのだけれど、「Tired of London, Tired of Life」という本を買って、今までに訪れたことない、ロンドンのまた違った一面を見るのが楽しい。

The view of London from Westminster Cathedral. We looked over the city from the top of the tower!


At Lassco Brunswick House at Vauxhall. Great place to visit. They have vintage interior and products. It would be nice if you are thinking to decorate your house.

Power of illustration!

I've just had an approval from my client on a new job.
Above is just a little peek of the work. I have illustrated various animals and Adam & Eve that might appear in a jungle...or in the garden of Eden.

I often think and struggle nowadays that if I really want to pursue my career as an illustrator. But getting a job like this and having the client saying they love my work makes me really happy and realise I probably can't take "illustrating" out of my life completely.

最近、このままイラストレーターとして続けていくことに対して不安だったり、やる気が削られそうになることがあったけれど、こうやってお仕事がもらえたり、依頼先の方から、「I love it!」なんて言われると、やっぱりすごく嬉しいし、絵を描くことを完全にやめてしまうことはできないだろうなぁ、なんて思います。この気持ちが消えないように、ちょっと頑張らねばです。
