Daughter's Illustrated Diary of Mother's Bentos
Artist Takahama Hiroko works at a Shinto shrine in Kobe, western Japan, as a caretaker. In return for her services, she uses the shrine office to produce artwork. Although now she is able to make a living and continue her passion, there was a time when it was becoming increasingly difficult for her to keep pursuing art, but the bentos her mother made for her every day during that period kept her spirits up. And now, Hiroko is coloring the illustrated bento diary she kept back then.
