何処でだって、あたしロリータ!
Doko de datte, atashi rorita! (No Matter Where I Am, I Remain a Lolita!)


様々な日本らしいシーンを思案いたしましたが、自分の経験とリンクさせる事が一番自然に描けるのではと思い、今回の絵となりました。
「ロリータ服」に近いお洋服をまとった少女を日頃から好んで描いておりますが、今回は思いきリ現実に引き寄せて「田舍でロリータファッションを貫く少女のワンシーン」を表現してみました。
私自身新潟の田舎で成人まで過ごしており、10代の頃ロリータファッションを好んでいた時期なんてまさにこんな感じ。家で武装をし、田舎から町の中心部に皆で集まったものです。ロリータ服で田舎道を闊歩する事はなかなか情熱が必要でした。
今も田舎でこのような光景が存在するのかは分かりませんが、私が経験した風景を1人でも多くの方に「あるある!」「見た見た!」と共感して頂けたリ、楽しんで頂けたら幸いです。
最後に。このような素晴らしい場にお呼び頂き、あリがとうございました!


I initially considered various different Japanese scenes, but I thought the most natural thing would be to draw something that was linked to my own experiences and this was the result.
I enjoy drawing pictures of girls wearing Western clothes that are almost 'Lolita costumes', and this time I thought that I would do something a bit more realistic and create ‘a scene of a young girl who persists in wearing Lolita fashions in a rural area'.
Until I grew up I lived in the countryside of Niigata Prefecture and there was a period during my teens when I liked Lolita fashion, just like the figure in this picture. I dressed up at home then set off to the centre of the local town where I would get together with my friends. It requires a great deal of enthusiasm to walk through the country dressed in Lolita clothes.
I do not know if this kind of scene can still be witnessed in the countryside today, but I have depicted an image from my youth in the hope that people will think, ‘I did that!’, ‘I’ve seen that!’, sharing my experience and getting enjoyment from it.
In closing I would like to thank the organizers for giving me the opportunity to participate in this event.
