I’m pleased to announce our participation in the group exhibition SOFT CITY, at Schloss Biesdorf, Berlin.
For this show I collaborated with a great artist, my art sensei, and last but not least my husband, Yukihiro Taguchi. We have been all around the east neighborhood of Berlin, Marzahn-Hellersdorf, drawing and shooting a stop-motion animation video, watching the city through a glass window…got curious? Come to see our short movie and installation at the exhibition!

I have exciting news for Berlin friends, Cicca will be debuting at Neonchocolate Festival at Berliner Postbahnhof on this weekend, 23rd-24th July from 1pm till 11pm.
I am so excited and a bit nervous, as this is the first time I will be attending an art festival with my illustration work.
I will display my new works of painting on vintage ceramics and some art prints, postcards and two handmade coloring zines!
I have still some work to do, as hand-binding for the zines and painting some pottery, but it is almost done 🙂
Please come this weekend and say hi!
Last Sunday was my first Sunday as seller at the flea market in Mauerpark and I loved it!
I went at 6 in the morning. It is very hard for me to wake up so early but it was worth it!
From my home in Lichtenberg I rode my bicycle, on the back one old suitcase that my boyfriend Yuki lent me (he used it also for selling his postcards and it’s perfect) and a small camping table.
The people were so nice, I really had a good time!
It was great for me also because it was the first time I showed my drawing to so many people and I was so excited to see the reactions! I look forward to going there again this Sunday.
Hoping I can get the same place close to the entrance e to those nice market mates!
I’m back in Berlin to usual life and usual weather….it is cold! It seems like the winter is back, a crazy cold! I miss the spring that I left in Barcelona…
But it’s ok, that means I have to stay at home in my little studio, sit at my desk, working on all the projects that I want to finish this year.
This magic japanese word means “I will do my best!”, I learned it from the thousands of anime that I watch always and of course from Yuki, my boyfriend.
So I will work hard this year to go a bit closer to my goals, and the bad weather can not stop me 😉
Just to remember that it is actually spring time, despite the Berlin cold, here a sketch that I did in Barcelona at Sant Jordi, while I was in La Rambla with my friends, selling books and bookmarks.
It represents the Princess of Sant Jordi’s legend. Although I thought it could be maybe a bit creepy, many children appreciated it and that made me so happy!
I’m very happy to announce that I’ve drawn some characters’ illustrations for Webfest Berlin 2016.
The festival is first web series festival in Berlin and it will be on the September 9-10 2016.
Submissions are open now!
