This book has already been published for a few months and it is one of the annual anthologies presented by pixiv. This one is dedicated to girls only illustrations published during the last year in the website.
They held a contest to decide wich illustrations will be featured in the book and one of the members of C★R, Aiwa, was choosen. The theme of said contests was “girls painting”, so all the illustrations in the book concerning the contest follow this theme.
You can see her illustration in the following link:
「青」 by Aiwa: [pixiv link]
It was her first time in a Japan publication and we hope it will not be the last.

It has been a while since the release of this book. Pixiv in association with Kotobukiya and Danny Choo made an international contest to choose the artists who would appear in this 4th volume of OTACOOL, a magazine-book aimed to “otaku” of all around the World.
Ninamo and Kenneos (respectively) from this circle had the honour to be chosen as the representants for Spain:
These were the illustrations:

And you can see a full review of the book in Ninamo’s blog here (Spanish only).
Half a year passed since this event, but it was a very special date for us, since it was the first time we published something in Japan and we are still really thankful for this.
We are proud to present a new member in our circle: Nevee.
Her illustrations have an elegant and unique touch, I recommend you to check her galleries:
