Hanako Oda's picture
Artist Hanako Oda graduated from Joshibi University of Art and Design, in Tokyo- Japan, in 2002, and has since had an extensive carrer in the arts, ranging from ceramics to theather production to her true love illustration.

Stories of Summer

  • Tomorrow

    "My name is Balzac. I seem to be a small cat, but in reality I’m big. I love traveling! I can see, hear and feel very many things with my own eyes, ears and body -my world’s expanding without limit. Routine mornings come on the sea, but it’s not same. New morning comes to my place every morning, and it comes to your place too. Is the world changing? No, that’s me. I’m changing. It’s going on even if we don’t like. I do make the coming world and myself of the next moment now. What can I meet tomorrow?"
  • I'm talking

    "I’m talking to whoever you are."
  • I’ll go up a slope again

    "I run down flying in the infinite blue sky. It takes a flash to get the foot I felt it was far. This is my favorite moment! I’ll go up a slope again."
