"Kuroino" is a copperplate print work.

In addition, "Tomato-san" who shows a strong and original expression, and "Ghost scary Kotoko-chan" who gives courage because a girl who is scared and can not go to the toilet alone at night picks up a ghost doll is copper You can enjoy Tanaka's style, which is different from the monochrome world of "Kuroino", with a delicate yet moving touch work drawn by hand coloring on prints.
