Kuma



Kumaさんどうしているかな?と思ったら、大丈夫だよ~。とメールがあった。
MilanoのMUDIMA 彼のアート展を開催したのは、8年前。現在は執筆活動の方も忙しいらしい。

「走れUMI」では、小学館児童文学賞を受賞。来月24日発売の「もちおもり」も楽しみ。
装丁も挿絵も自作で優しい雰囲気。ダイナミックでやさしい人柄が出ているな~。
I was thinking how was KUMA san doing, and then I received his email saying “I am fine”. It was 8 years ago when we had his art exhibition in Milan called MUDIMA. He is busy writing books. He received an award on his book, and I look forward to reading his new book which will be publishing on 24 May. He took in charge of drawing in his book and the book looks having gentle feeling. This book shows his character – dynamic and gentle.
