The following is an introductory text.

I loved to imagine the world of picture books that my grandmother always read, and wanted to live in the world of poetry and stories.

It is said that the beginning of picture books was the Heian period picture scrolls in Japan and the 16th century Reformation in the West.It continues to be drawn in various eras in various lands around the world as a means and pictorial book to tell various stories such as myths, religions, feelings in life, and messages to society.

Modern manga, anime, novels, and photo essays can also be called picture books.Some picture books have no words, while others explain science rather than stories.What I want to convey in words, what I can't convey well, what I really want to say, and what I don't want to say.

In the September exhibition of picture books, the world of the story is scattered while changing the emotions that are not usually good for words, the fragments of memory that flow in the heart, and the things that are before thinking into colors and lines. I made a picture.I would be happy if you could imagine the fragments of the story that flow in the time in the picture.
