Award winning Japanese illustrator based in New York City and instructor at School of Visual Arts.


Also, finished a lecture and tour at Dahesh Museum of Art last Saturday. It was a bit tough to prepare for a lecture and a tour of their latest show “Stories to Tell” while I was sick and dealing with tight deadlines, but thanks to super nice and friendly audience (including dear Marcos Chin and Mihoko Hakata) and Liz Gaudino of Education Department at Dahesh who helped me prepare, for making my experience smooth, easy and memorable. This wonderful show of history of American Illustration is open till May and there will be lecture and tour by illustrators every week, including my dear professor Thomas Woodruff.

By the way, those of you who have been looking for a good place to have English high tea in mid-town Manhattan, Cafe Opaline is the place to be!
