Illustration for the remembrance day of the Hungarian Revolution at 15th March

Artwork by Kumiko Sakaki

Hi Everyone (Especially Hungarian friends)!

As you know, today is the Remembrance day of the Hungarian Revolution at 15th March 1848. I painted for my Hungarian friend and people who have stood up for freedom at that time. This Hungarian Hussar's uniform has very colorful red, white and green. The clothing is really beautiful. Of course, their hearts, too.

I will so glad if they like my work :-)

ハンガリーの知人からキシュ・ヨージェフ(Kiss József)に関する補足を伺う。

twitterでお世話になっているハンガリーのイムレさんにも「1848年のハンガリー革命から今年で170周年」と伺いました。実は私、オーストリア=ハンガリー帝国航空隊のキシュ・ヨージェフ(Kiss József)の親類かもしれないキシュ・エルノーさん(Eleméri és ittebei Kiss Ernő)がきっかけでハンガリー革命に興味をもちました。

Artwork: Bit by bit...

Artwork by Kumiko Sakaki

Hello everyone. How have you been?
2017 finished a half. Indeed "time and tide wait for no man".

The book which I drew an illustration will on sale June 7. Though it's written by only Japanese words, if you can read the word, I recommend to get the book.

Like that, Recent years I have more work (office and other illustrations), so I can get ahead with my lifework only bit by bit...But,
I've never forget my BD or novel project, and the works are in process. Thank you for my cheering up!

For your kindness...

Dear people who gave replies to me :-)

Dear people who gave replies to me,

Thank you for writing a praise and criticisms for articles about me mentioned in "Europeana blog" in last year. I would appreciate that you made time for me. I'm honored you see my creative side. Thank you so much.

My artworks aren't retro or decadence, it's a part of my research on the project.
Though I think some historians can understand this, even though the history fiction authors or artists live in modern times, when they make stories or draw artworks about other era, some materials are needed for history.

In order to reproduce how they spent at that time, also I check at their clothes which is included the military uniform. (Needless to say, with cultures.) In that sense, historical research may become "decadence which is sticking to the dead past".

If works freed from artists, it becomes an other thing. But It doesn't mean that I don't want to have a responsibility to artworks. I proud my work, but also it's good that there are many thoughts.

While I have respect to my motif, I would only carefully promote my projects at the own pace.

By the way......
Unfortunately, I'm not age enough to go on with passion like youths in 20s-30s years old. I'm sorry for making me misunderstand from my one of my photo that I'm a young girl, haha ;-)
