Society of Illustrators Annual Awards ニューヨークを受賞!

五木寛之さんのベストセラー「生きるヒント」の表紙イラストレーションが、ニューヨークの「Society of Illustrators Annual Awards 」を受賞。まだ、イラストレーターの実績が全くない日本人を、純粋に作品で評価してくれたのもこのアワードだった。それから、本格的にイラストをスタートさせることに。全米・世界から名だたるイラストレーターが集まるアカデミー賞みたいなものだけに、この中に名を連ねることは嬉しい限りだ。この作品「Jackson in New York」は、もともと、ニューヨークの個人コレクターのために描き下ろしたもの。それを巨匠作家・五木寛之さんに気に入っていただき、表紙に抜擢された作品です。Society of Illustrators、五木寛之さん、集英社文庫の方々、テラエンジンの高橋さん、Wendy、機会をいただきありがとうございました。さあ、もっと描こう。

A front cover illustration for Hiroyuki Itsuki's best-seller "Hints for Life" will be included in the Society of Illustrators Annual Awards Exhibition. Several years back, the SI awarded a totally unknown Japanese illustrator purely for my work, even though he had not received any major award before. In fact, that was my starting point as a professional illustrator. It is a genuine honour to be selected in the Exhibition and in book among other many renowned illustrators across the globe. Society of Illustrators, Mr. Hiroyuki Itsuki, staff from Shueisha, Mr.Takahashi and Wendy, thank you all for giving me a great opportunity. Now if you excuse me, I'll go back to draw more.

生きるヒント」文庫版の第3弾! The third book of the Hints for Life!


The third book of the Hints for Life has been published. The original piece was for an art collector in New York, which Mr. Hiroyuki Itsuki (Japanese popular author) also really liked for the front cover of his book. After being approved from the collector, I have made some change to the piece make it specially for the cover of the book.
