Kenji Morimoto is a fourth generation Japanese American, whose cultural identity is grounded in food. As a child, he was in charge of making Japanese food - especially Tsukemono (Japanese pickles) for family gatherings, learning from and surrounded by elders recreating flavors of home.
I'm so honored to create article illustrations for his wonderful story, also had a lot of fun to draw a variety of Japanese food as a first generation Japanese who is living in the U.S.
