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.

Sleeping together

We have a bank bed. Maya sleeps on upstairs and Hanna sleeps on downstairs. I sleep with Hanna on the tiny twin size bed, because Hanna somehow notices that I'm not there and cries in the middle of the night. It is easier for me to sleep with her even on the tiny bed than to walk to her bed every time she cries. Americans may be surprised, but it is pretty common parents co-sleep with kids in Japan.
One morning, when I came to wake them up after taking shower, I was surprised to see Hanna is sleeping with Maya on upstairs! This is what happened. When I was taking shower, Hanna woke up and called me. Maya noticed I was not coming, so she called Hanna to come upstairs. Then, Hanna climbed up the ladder with sleepy head and slept together peacefully.
