A new artist to AkaTako! I met Chika Yamada in Tokyo and was drawn to her big blue schoolgirls surveying the world around them. Sometimes they dominate their surroundings and sometimes they are overwhelmed by them. I hope you like her works as much as I do!

Artist produced book, signed with a small original drawing:
