I went to see an artist talk by Satoshi Kitamura at Japan Foundation.
Satoshi Kitamura
Satoshi Kitamura illustrates children’s books including “Millie’s Marvellous Hat” (2009), “In the Attic” (1984), “Me and My Cat” (1999) and “When Sheep Cannot Sleep” (1988).
Millies Marvellous Hat
His illustrations are filled with drawings of sheep, rabbits, dinosaurs and cats. They are full of imaginations and fabulous colours.
His books are available both in Japanese and English. He also translated other authors’ books including the well-known “Elmer the Elephant” series by David McKee.
In the Attic
The talk was supported with the slideshow of his work on the screen. Satoshi showed the collection of his illustrations on the envelopes he sent with letters in. They were all so beautiful. Anyone who receives his letter would be delighted.
