drew this image with inspiration by JITTERIN'JINN's song "present".
This song tells a story about all of present which a girl was given from her ex-boyfriend.
So what will she found after she left from him? objects with beautiful memory?
A year passed from graduation of my uni.
it was so quick to come here this point, i still cannot believe with everything i have done in London.
Did i really hand-in the long 7,000 words of writing? Did i really make everything for final projects in the tight schedule?
Did i? Did i? DId i???
Now Im back in calm, and look back to my london life. I still feel like i was in dream, london is my wonderland.
that four years student life was unforgettable term in my life. never never and never.
and now let me look at my current situation.
am i doing what i wanted? am i create enough? am i still growing up?
different things from before i can say are, yes i got fat, i eat a lot, i have got many spots on my face, forgetting how to speak English, doing design stuffs as a job and fighting with technology everyday, and i don't think things seriously much. mmm are they all positive meaning to me?
let's look back a year later and ask me same question again. What will i reply to this?
i love walking after work in dark, this early summer season is the best for that!
people's faces are happy on the streets and quite good for new shops or cafe discovery.
my office is in Aoyama, and usually i walk till Harajuku or sometimes Shinjuku if i feel like to walk for long.
My favourite area is Sendagaya and Shinjukugyoen, somehow i feel im in an ethnic town or passed period (60-70s!) when im around there. also love to have a short brake at a cafe with iced coffee and draw what i see through the journey.
I see many different faces of tokyo huge city by useing my eyes and foot!
js joined Tezukuri-ichi which is one of the biggest hand-craft market in tokyo and held in the site of old shrine!
First of all we need to go and worship at a main building of the shrine, it's the official rule of the market, so nice!
This time I sold pins made of pieces of wood with colourful animal motif stamps. I quite like the idea of this product and material.
It was nice to meet many people with different feedbacks, these always give me motivation for creativity.
love to have a stall at this sort of market very soon!
I designed a poster work for Konica Minolta's poster exhibition.
The theme is "eco action at home".
My concept for the final piece is "Share the same space with your family altogether is the best action for the eco-activity.
You could save extra electricity and also have the pleasures of a happy home as you share the space and time together.
We care about eco things too fussily, and it seems forgetting its essence I guess. Lets look back to the basis, and reconfirm the reason why we do eco-activity for our happy future!
The poster exhibition
@Digital imaging square,
4th floor Shinagawa grand central tower
the nearest station is Shinagawa, JR Yamanote line
"design festa", the biggest independent designer's exhibition, was held at Tokyo big sight last weekend.
Me and my friends joined it as "js", a design group, and we exhibited and also sold our handmade craft works.
We had good feedback from visitors, and receiving these kind of responses make huge motivation for creation. Feeling like getting out from my own space. Yes, I will keep going making my favourite works as I come and go between my world to the real world.

i went to an eco friedly event a few days ago, and bought a japanese orange fruit from one of the organic stalls.
i don't like citrus fruits though the salesperson said "this is the sweet one", but actually not. ...so i made marmalade by the fruit.
it took a bit of time though the taste of the jam is very soft and tasty bitter. mmm i would be into food creation!
