Alf King And His Adopted Princess
I have painted some illustrations of this type.
This illustration was to be sold as one of MangaJapan Gallery
exhibits at the charity for the Hanshin Earthquake Disaster.
But the proceeds was not used for what I had expected.
The bona fide funds, which were collected by comic illustration artists
and readers, should have been used directly for victims of the disaster.
It has never ought to be moved at someone's convenience or interpretation of it.
On reflection of that time,
I came to send contributions to grass-roots volunteers
on the spot directly and privately. If MJ will hold big charity events again
in the future, I intend to confirm the receivers before participation.
