絵本「ワニはどうしてワニっていうの?」(作: 大塚健太さん、小学館さんより4月13日発売)に絵を描かせて頂きました。

デザインは坂川朱音さんです。
お話もデザインも本の佇まいも、なんだか笑ってしまうおもしろかわいい本になりました♪

せっかく楽しいお話なので、ぜひチビッコたちに楽しんで貰いたいなぁ〜と、描きながら私もいつの間にかチビッコになっていました。
おじいちゃん、おばあちゃんまで、みなさんで是非ワニになって読んで頂きたいです🐊
予約も開始しております。
(またはamazonなどのWebショップや日本全国の書店でも)
是非よろしくお願い致します🙇‍♀️
色校正からいくつかと、製本された絵本から少しご紹介します。
絵のタッチと紙の質感のコンビネーションがとても良い感じになりましたので、ぜひ紙の本をお手にとってご覧頂けると嬉しいです!

I had the opportunity to draw pictures for this very funny and cute story.
New picture book, “Wani ha doshite Wani tte iuno? (Why are crocodiles called crocodiles?)” Published from Shogakukan (to be released 13 April)
Original story and text by Kenta Otsuka.

Designed by Akane Sakagawa. The story, the design and the appearance of the book all make for an interesting funny and cute book that makes you smile.

The story is cute and funny! So I wanted to make sure the little childrens enjoyed as much as I did, and before I knew it, I had become a little one myself while drawing it.
I’d love everyone from little ones to grandparents to read it as a crocodile.🐊
Please visit the Shogakukan website for reservations.

(Or in webshops such as amazon or in bookshops across Japan.)
Thank you very much.🙇‍♀️

Here are some from the colour proofs and a few from the bound picture book.
The combination of the touch of the pictures and the texture of the paper turned out really well, so I’d be delighted if you could take a look at the paper book!
