UNIVERSE // Music Zine vol.1


Music Zine vol.1

Edit & Design by Forrest Lau | @4res

Here I'd like to share our new music zine!
We chose our favorite music reminding us of UNIVERSE.
Our zine consists of two parts.
Forrest made beautiful collages for his part and I illustrated for my own.
I'm happy to show one of my favorite pages.

Happy 2021

I am happy to welcome a new year after one of the hardest year for everyone of us.
The year 2020 was emotionally exhausting and the pandemic reality is still hard but I really appreciate for my friends and family who share anxiety and care each other. 
Here I would like to strongly hope 2021 will bring us more happiness to live in this world.

Here in this year, I would love to spend more time for reading books!

January has began with this book which I had stopped reading a while ago.
So it's a nice idea to finish firstly :)

 A while ago, I contributed as an illustrator to a literature magazine published by students at University of Oslo. It was a pure pleasure to draw the ones about  actual global issues!

Newly printed mini zine

 During this pandemic, I dreamed of my favorite place on earth - Icealnd.
I couldn't draw almost at all when I was staying there. However I started drawing after being back in Tokyo. The gap between two places, a rupture inspired me a lot. Since then I did many sketches pour rien and left them behind. And covid pandemic has arrived. Again I started drawing what I experienced in Iceland...

Here I see the summer is approaching.
Daylight gets longer, fields becomes greener.
Soon lives are in fully bloom.

But I love winter.
To be honest, I don't like heat and humidity in the next season.
I prefer silence and white snow.
Winter gives me time & space to absorb and wait.

I instantly fall in love with the nature in Northern countries.
It might be because I was born in the north.

I start my own projects inspired my winter experiences and "north".

In the end of a day

easy lemon ginger

I preserved leftover lemons from the lemon cake into sugar.
I enjoy this as lemon tea and also hot lemon ginger.
It's super simple the second one; add one or two slices of pickled lemon, a few teaspoon of ginger powder and lemon into hot water. It is a nice reward for the end of a day.
It is caffein-free and gently warms your throat and body.
Especially these days, I'm easily tired because of the disappointing politics and sad news so decided to remove news app, twitter or fb messenger apps from my iPhone.
Now I appreciate my time taking time to drink a cup of lemon ginger and writing a diary before going to bed.


Yesterday afternoon, the fields in my hood.
Farmers prepare to seed and soils are ready to grow potatoes.
