I want to present “Shuwa-Shuwa” shuwashuwabook book in which I have participated.
Discover my and 99 others illustrations, made by 100 illustrators from 35 countries. Each of us has drawn his/her own vision of a Japanese onomatopoeia.
When Japanese want to express something they often use onomatopoeia instead of saying a long sentence.
For example: “Pichi-Pichi”- looking fresh and young, “Hoka-Hoka”- a relaxing warmth, “Kin Kin”- ice-cold/very cold. My illustration was about “Guda-Guda” – wasting time.
