La nuit, ailleurs --- another laser-cut picture book

" La nuit, ailleurs " = " The night, elsewhere " is my second title in the same series of "Papiers Coupés", fabricated at the laser-cut studio oft the publisher Grandir
This is the another story in the full-moon night.

Removing the silver sheet, the hidden tint --- purple surface of the book --- appears.
The motif on the cover is a bud of "Queen of the night".

The accordion-folded structure seen from the front side.  The Queen of the night bloomed,  mother and child of Malayan tapir, a grape vine, a rabbit in the wood, a snow mountain ...... and those peeping from behind .

Quand petit Tomo dort, a new picture book

"Quand petit Tomo dort"= " While little Tomo sleeps"
Fabricated at the laser-cut studio "Papiers Coupés", one of the section of the publisher Grandir.

Photo exhibition " Paris, doux et seul "

A little photo exhibition is held, from January 2017, at the salon of Libé, a French language school in Tokyo. These photos are taken during my visit to Paris.
The title would be translated ( though not literally ) " Paris, sweet solitude " .

Designs for Silk Scarf

I'd like to propose these three design(sketches) for square silk scarf, adopting the concepts of my previous works on picture books. The theme is "Have Fun in the Square !"

Scarf01.jpg
Composing little animals from " Here I am ! the A-mazing Little Creatures ".
The background might be the pattern of plants, or, the maze would be spread in full size.

Scarf02.jpg
Deforming and modifying the drawing from " Wind, Wave & Circle Dance / Un fils du vent, Une fille de l'onde/ Rondo-Mondo ", the line is circulating in this square space.

Designs for Sports Scarf Towel

Maruko50-web.jpgTwo designs for the towel celebrating 50th anniversary of a certain golf practice range. Considering the towel material, the second design (bottom) was adopted as  a giveaway novelty for the customers.

Book that Loops

cover_open.jpg
This is a prototype of the book (expecting some publisher !) I presented at the solo-exhibition in May, at Gallery EF Monthly Art Shop (Tokyo).
Two lines, orange and blue compose the scene on each spread and, as the lines continue on the front and back covers too, the story never ends making a loop forever. 

Football for Heroines

Now the World Cup in Brazil is in the midst of the heat ! 
And I remember the time when I begun to watch football games.

These are the T-shirt designs for the group-exhibition to cerebrate the World cup football 2002 ( in Korea & Japan).

These would be appropriate for the women's ;-) don't you think?
I put 2015 in the place of 2002 for the Women's World Cup 2015 !

The beginning and the end can be connected so as to make a loop. 

With this design, I wrapped the cylinder-shaped container.
