PLEASE is a complimentary brochure issued monthly by Kyushu Japan Railway. Kyushu is a southern area of Japan and if you are traveling there you will find one of these brochures in most of the train stations or seat pockets of express trains. PLEASE acts as a travel guide of sorts, the cover featuring sight-seeing spots of interest to tourists.
The commissioned PLEASE covers have been an ongoing assignment for over a year. Tatsuro’s brief is usually to illustrate a scene from a featured article. Reference and names of places are provided but Tatsuro isn’t given the chance to read the article. A leap of faith that has won the client and the artist awards with American Illustration and the Society of Illustrators.
