“Children travel into their own worlds with their free minds.”
I created this work with the thought of how children would view a play that they could not possibly "understand".
The ukiyoe used in this project are Magoshichi and Jinzo the Toolmaker, both painted by Kuniyoshi Utagawa.
I use public domain images whose copyrights have expired, which have been digitally archived and made available to the public by museums in various countries.
Even though the copyrights have expired, I use each of works with respect and affection, which were created with great care by the artists of the time.
I also use old paper and books that I have on hand, along with public domain images that are distributed and sold in various countries.
I hope that in the distant future, my illustrations will be a seed for someone else's creativity.
