Shortly after I finished pasting, I started to work on the details, but there was something I didn’t like. It’s quite difficult, but I decided to fix it. As a result, it worked, but I was very nervous. Because if I make a mistake, I could start all over again.
It took a day and a half to finally complete the groundwork. B1 (728 x 1,030 mm) size is very difficult to paste. The reason is that it is easy to wrinkle and there are gaps in the bonding area. Because of the tension, I take a break every time I finish pasting one color.
I will trace the original sketch and draw it based on it. I do the tracing manually, so it always shifts. So, in anticipation of that, we have to get closer to the original sketch. This groundwork greatly affects the quality of the work, so it is very nerve-wracking.
It’s unusual for me to publish part of the process. Lol ( ^_^ 😉
Draw and erase, draw and erase repeatedly. In the era when personal computers became mainstream, I drew directly on full-scale paper in this way to complete the sketch. Once you have decided on the general composition, rewrite this multi-layered gland into a single thin line. By the way, at this point, the color composition is almost complete in my head. It is useless to draw a fine pattern, so I will not draw it at all. This work is scheduled to be released in Hamamatsu City in August this year.
year was a year when we ware at the mercy of COVID-19. I hope this turmoil will
subside and peaceful days will come back.
How did you all spend the holiday season?
By the way, this year is the year of Ox. According to the story, this idea of the zodiac seems to exist not only in Japan but also in other countries around the world. The animals are a little different, but they are almost the same. I’m not saying it’s named after the year of Ox, but in August of this year, he will hold a group exhibition in Hamamatsu City, Shizuoka Prefecture, with the theme of “cow”. I will be at the venue all day during the exhibition. Please come and visit us. Let’s make this year a happy year too!!
From December 3rd to November 8th next year, a Taiwan-Japan paper-cutting exchange exhibition will be held at the Museum (Soulangh Cultural Park) （蕭壠文化園區） in Tainan City, Taiwan. If true, I would have been in Taiwan at this time, but I gave up traveling because of COVID-19. I was planning to attend the opening of the exhibition and hold a workshop, but I couldn’t do that either. I’m really sorry. However, the exhibition period is one year. If there are signs that COVID-19 has converged and it has become easier to travel, I would like to travel for about two weeks. If you have family and friends in Taiwan, we would appreciate it if you could introduce them and have a look.
I’m very exciting!! Because this exhibition was broadcast on TV and my work was widely introduced.
Suddenly, I will be attending an exhibition in Kyoto from the 19th of this month. For this exhibition, FELLINI GALLERY, the organizer, found my work on the Internet. FELLINI GALLERY consulted me on the 2nd of this month. I was quite surprised because the offer was so sudden, but I listened to the story and decided to participate.
78-3 Shinmarutamachi, Kyoto, Japan zip 606-8386
Date：Nov. 19. 2020 ～ Jan. 18. 2021
It’s a corona vortex exhibition, so I can’t stay at the venue all day, but I think I have to go on the first day. Since I participated in a sudden exhibition, there are no new works, but it is almost the first time to exhibit in the Kansai area, so I would appreciate it if you could come and see it. Please forgive that the names on the site are different. (When will they fix it ?: lol)

From Tuesday, September 15th to Tuesday, September 22nd, a new and contemporary artist art exhibition will be held at the 2nd gallery of Akino Fukuryu Museum in Tenryu Ward, Hamamatsu City, and will be exhibited there.
It’s a time when it’s hard to go out in the corona whirlpool, but I think it’s a good place for a little refreshment in the green environment. It will be 4 consecutive holidays and there will be no rest until the last day, so I hope you will take this opportunity to take a look.
