Painted a book cover illustration for the new Japanese-language edition
This book is a new Japanese-language edition in which world’s leading experts answer children’s various quirky questions. This is one of the two books that I was requested cover illustrations.
The content of the illustration was left to me, and I depicted the world of this book freely based on the children’s questions.
This one is that brain motif children are asking many questions to the banana motif professor.
My first rough sketch was too cute, the client wanted more bold and sharp illustration, so I struggled to adjust it with many rough sketches.
But it was my first time to paint book cover illustration freely, so it was a very valuable experience.
Hope many children and their parents enjoy this book.
