“Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader? 6” KADOKAWA

Painted about 120 cut illustrations

This is the sixth in a series of books based on the TV show “Are you smarter than a 5th grader?” (Japanese version), airing on Nippon Television Network Corporation. New design and new illustrations from this issue.
I was in charge of illustration and painted a lot such as children, animals, foods, experiment illustration, and likeness of historical person.

For the chapter door illustrations, I was asked to depict something funny while relating to each subject, so I created the characters with motifs associated with each subjects. My favorite is the math triangle character.

I was happy to be involved in this work related to a show I sometimes watch on TV.
Hope many children will enjoy this book with their families.
