I can sing a rainbow. It’s a children’s song.
I used copy paper and drawing paper.
I cut it out by a cutter.
When I work at Children’s center, they cheer me up to study art.
16 years ago! I can’t believe.

When I was kid, I liked the craft.
I was working as an Aide at Children’s center from 2001. All the teachers and staff were very kind to me. I was shy and didn’t have self-confident. But the teacher said ” We love you” and ” We need you” That made me so happy.
2002, I had a homework to illustrate children’s song.
People liked it. It changed my life. I thought I want to be an illustrator for children’s book. I took art classes. I self-published my picture book in 2010.
I started to send illustrations to hospital from 2008 till now.
My father was in the hospital. So I wanted to cheer him up.
I wanted to cheer people who patient, patient’s family, staffs, and visitor, too
I started as a volunteer at Huntington Beach Art Center from 2010-2017
My friend asked me to join the CRAFTED PORT OF LA in 2012.
It’s an open weekend. Many handmade artists sell a handmade product.
I sold a stuffed animal, card, keychains, picture book, bag, and illustration.
I was trying to make cute things at that time. We did for a year and quit. It was a good experience. I could see the people’s smile. It made me happy. Around that time I had a chance work with Japanese people. I do appreciate that.
I started work from 2013. It was not related to art.
I wanted to make a good magnet. So I was kept buy the magnet material and tried. I quit work 2017. I was watching YouTube then I found the online class called Skillshare. I loved to watch. There is all answer to my question.
The teacher encourages and staffs are super supportive. I made a class in April.
It was harder than I thought. But I could finish because of someone looking forward to it. I hope this time I can make a better class.
I also need to mention Dustin of RetroSupplyCo.
My illustration was too simple and boring. So I wanted to change.
When I was watching the Skillshare’s class, I found this company.
Dustin gave me a courage to start this blog.
Skillshare and RetroSupplyCo were my motivation right now.
The problem is I am not good at explaining.

Water color

I love adobe illustrator because I can undo as much as I want.
That’s why I didn’t try others.  I can’t undo.
But I tried water color today.

Happy feeling 何だか嬉しい

I feel the people’s kindness through taking online class and tutorial.
Because people are trying to help other.
Maybe that’s why. So nice

オンラインコースを受けているので、人と直接関わるわけではないのに
不思議と人の優しさを感じます。不思議だな。
きっと、先生もスタッフの人も先生のお友達も、誰かの手助けしたいといういがあるからなんだろうなと思います。
今まで、苦手なことは目をつぶってばっかりでしたが、
少しづつ克服したいと思います。
