_  「このイラストは、東京にも(京都ほど有名ではないにせよ)花街があることにインスパイアされて描きました。浅草や人形町などを歩いていれば、そんな区域にばったり出くわせるかもしれません。東京のいたるところで見られる蛍光灯の光や看板を表現したくて、着物の中にカラフルな模様を描き込みました。」  "I was inspired to make this illustration from the fact that Tokyo also has its own Geisha district, although not as well known as Kyoto. If you're lucky enough, you might stumble upon them in areas like Asakusa or Yoshi-cho. I wanted to use the colorful patterns in her kimono to depict the city lights and signboards all around Tokyo."  _  Fern Choonet is a freelance illustrator originally from Bangkok, educated in Toronto and currently living in Tokyo.
