いとおかし
Ito okashi (Very Tasteful)


和菓子と苺大福をイメージした女の子を描かせていただきました。
和菓子は日本ならではの素材である水飴や小豆等を使用した伝統的なお菓子です。
上品な甘さでそれぞれの季節を表現した見ためはとても可愛らしく、伝統的でありながら常に新しいものを取り入れる様がとても日本らしく、女の子らしいのではないかと思い、このような絵になリました。

絵の和菓子は上から春夏秋冬になっており、下の方は春へと戻っています。¶また伝統に現代の要素を入れ、和菓子をドット状に置いたリ髪をピンクにしたり、着物も遊びのある模様にしてみることによっておかし(お菓子)とおかし(面白い)のダブルミ一ニングを狙いました。


I have drawn a picture of a girl based on the image of Japanese cakes and rice cakes with strawberries inside.
Japanese cakes are made using traditional ingredients, such as starch syrup and adzuki beans, etc.
They possess a refined sweetness and are created in shapes that symbolize the different seasons, making them look really cute. They are traditional while always incorporating something new, making them typically Japanese, and I feel that they have a very feminine appearance. This is how the picture turned out.

The cakes depicted in the picture start with spring at the top then move through summer, fall and winter before returning to spring again at the bottom.
I also added some contemporary elements to the traditional motif, placing the cakes in a pattern of dots, giving the girl pink hair, while also giving the kimono an amusing pattern, creating a play on the Japanese word ‘okashi’ which means both ‘cake’ and ‘strange’.
