I received a package from Japan yey!
Otani Memorial Art Museum, where the Bologna illustrator's exhibition will be during 22nd August to 27th September, have made memo pads with envelopes using my illustration!! I'm so pleased :)
In the bottom picture is my name in English and Japanese.
People often get my name wrong. I've had the odd letter incorrectly added or misplaced (Mariuchi, Moriguchi), new names and gender given to me, (Mike, Mick, Miko, Monique) and once, even a whole new identity (Monica Moropochi)! I wonder what she is like...

I like post

Being a bit of a night owl, I don't like being woken up early. BUT there are a few exceptions, like the arrival of post :)
I received my copies of "At the playschool" the other day, which was worth me running all the way down the stairs in my pajamas and bed hair, pretending that I've been awake for a while, when I opened the door to the postman.
The colours came out a little bit darker than the originals, but I am happy to finally see them as books. If only I could read Korean!
