I make sketches whenever I find something inspiring and touching. Those moments filter through my mind and create a small world in my sketch book.

Happy Father's Day!

Today is Father's day. The relationship between a father and a daughter is a little bit awkward.
First of all, they are the opposite sex. They have very limited time to be together. So they don't have the same intimacy as a mother and a daughter. My family is not an exceptional. My husband, Jim, is having a difficult time with Maya, sometimes.
But this week, Jim really succeeded to entertain her with his hidden paper cut talent! He is always very clever with his hands.(better than me...) I didn't know he is good at paper cutting. He created a princess, a mermaid, a prince and a dragon, everything Maya asked. She was so excited about those paper dolls that she even slept with them. Happy Father's Day, Jim!

でも、今週は切り絵で娘のハートをキャッチする事に成功!普段から手先がとても器用な彼ですが、切り絵の才能があるのは知りませんでした。お姫様に王子様、人魚姫やドラゴンまで、マヤがお願いするもの全部作ってみせたので、マヤは大喜び!その日は、切り絵の人形たちと一緒に眠ったほどでした。Happy Father's Day, Jim!


  1. Thanks Chiaki!
    You're very right! Being a grow up sometimes it's quite a stretch to enter a little girl's world. But there're moments when I'm able to relate to my daughter and entertain her... The days like that are the real Father's days to me.

  2. Thanks, Jim! Maya loves you so much. You are a great father!
