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.

Dress warm!

It's been really cold in San Francisco. We are used to cold San Francisco "summer", but not cold "winter"... Our heater is on for all day. Hanna likes her warm winter had that Maya used to wear. 
Please take care, everyone! Happy Holidays and A Happy New Year!!!

Happy Holidays and A Happy New Year!

I tend to post my drawings of my 3-year-old daughter, Hanna, more than the ones of my 10-year-old daughter, Maya, recently... But she is still definitely an interesting person to draw and write about. Sometimes, she comes up with some idea and works hard to realize her idea. This is when she invented the device  to lift her books to her bed. Since she sleeps on upstair bed, she had hard time to climb the ladder carrying many books. So with my husband's help, she created this book carrier!

最近、次女のはなの絵をポストにすることが多くて、長女のまやはすっかり脇役になってしまいましたが、まだまだ私がスケッチに残したくなるような面白いことをやってくれます! 時々、面白いアイデアが浮かんでくると、なんだか一人で夢中になって作ります。これは、自分の本を二段ベッドの上の階に持ち上げる仕組みを作ってニンマリしている時の絵です。そういえば、上で寝ているまやは、本を持って梯子を登るのが大変だとブツブツ言っていました。それで、旦那の助けを借りて、この”本運び機”を発明したのでした。
