Shiitake is a young illustrator from Fukuoka and made herself known quickly thanks to her illustration and artbook project, “Gensodo”. Her style is both rich and refined, and in full swing when she draws young girls surrounded by flowers.
This “mushroom” (Shiitake in Japanese) unlike others regularly exhibitis her works in Japan and is always very successful. First spotted in the background of Japanese fanzines (Dôjinshi), she illustrated in 2011 Kaguya, princesse au clair de lune with the publisher nobi nobi !, a first illustrated album spotted for the refinement of her drawings.
In 2012, Shiitake is impatient to show her first poetry collection, Yôsei, dans le secret des fées, to the French public. She is at Japan Expo from July 5 to 8 for signing sessions on the booth of nobi nobi !.
