I finally got my head around to announce my secret news!  During February and March, I was working very hard on a project with Walker Books to illustrate one of the stories in the Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories!  It is an anthology of 10 prize-winning stories and the one I illustrated is called "The Hedgehog Who Wouldn't Sleep."  And here is a sneak preview of him!


This anthology is in fact a series, following the Mumsnet Book of Bedtime stories, which includes a variety of lovely stories with beautiful illustrations,some by my classmates Joanne Young, Gemma O'Callaghan and Tamsin Gilbert.  So I know that this one is going to be another interesting, beautiful book full of great artworks!  It will be published in October and I am very much excited about it.

この春、ちょっと自慢できるお仕事をいただいた。イギリスのMumsnetが主催する童話コンクールで入賞した10作品をまとめた本で、10月にWalker Booksから出版される、"the Mumsnet Book of Animal Stories" の一作品にイラストを描かせてもらったのだ!  Walker Booksの自然科学の本などがとても好きだったので、卒業展のあとポートフォリオを送ったりとコンタクトはとっていた。それにしても、日本にいる会ったこともないイラストレーターに、10ページ分ものイラストを描いてくれ、と仕事依頼を出してしまう、イギリス人のコスモポリタンぶりに驚いた。
