Cinderella shopping recording

Today was the second recording day of the TV program “Cinderella shopping” hosted by Masami Hisamoto.

It is not a terrestrial TV program, but a style in which we do everything from product selection, program production, and product shipping. I am happy to hear that it is going well ♡

 I am looking forward to the broadcast!

Client work |Tokki Tokki Tokyo Image Illustration

I created an image character for “tokki tokki tokyo”, a new company based in Japan and Korea. It was born out of producer Chizu Oikawa’s liking of the long-eared rabbit introduced at last year’s my solo show.May it be popular✨

“Animal Masterpieces” and “lucky charms”

The exhibition is over and I just delivered the illustrations for my work. I decided to organize my future and decided on a theme to work on for the next year.

“Loving Masterpiece Series” of animal masterpieces
“Lucky Monster Series” incorporating lucky charms.

For the time being, I would like to continue to produce and present my original works while deepening these two series, and then create more stories.

Please let me know your favorite “masterpieces” and “lucky charms!

At the beginning of next month, the exhibition schedule until next spring will be finalized. So now, the schedule is not tight. I’m going back to my hometown this weekend!

All summer exhibitions are over
and future plans

All the summer exhibitions are over, thank you!

This year’s year-end and New Year group exhibition at Ginza Mitsukoshi has been decided. And before that, there will be one exhibition of some kind, which is currently being adjusted.

Next year will probably be a masterpiece series in Taiwan. I would like to hold a solo exhibition in Japan that is not a series of masterpieces, although the location and schedule are undecided. And I want to make it into a picture book! !

More and more, I want to create a slightly strange and cute world. Thank you for your continued support.

Starting from Hankyu department store, Isetan Urawa store, Shinjuku Isetan and my Apple Bear participated. Thank you for welcoming. Hope you enjoy!

■Yuko Yoshioka Tribute Exhibition
It was a short period of 6 days in the hot weather, but thank you for coming to many people. I made straight pieces of a dachshund. I’m thinking of selling one of the waiting items on my online shop.It was a good time.Thank you everyone!


■Loving Masterpiece Collection
A one-month fair inside the Ginza Tsutaya bookstore. It was decided in the spring, and we managed to hold the fair with the postponement of the Taiwan project. It was a period of trial and error in a blessed place where many people from various countries came and went. I will continue to brush up and develop the same theme. The Panda will appear again🎀


8/8(Tue)-8/13(Sun) Yuko Yoshioka Tribute Exhibition

Yuko Yoshioka, my former teacher at my alma mater, Palette Club School, will have a solo exhibition at Popularity Gallery in Gaienmae. I have been mixed in with the wonderful members of the concurrent tribute exhibition. I will be creating works on the theme of the beloved miniature dachshund, which I share with Ms. Yoshioka. It is a hot season, but there will be online sales, so I hope you will take a peek.

The work will be made from now on. I hope it will be a wonderful work of art!
