2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I like to draw a person’s calm emotions. I want to portray the feelings and emotions that the figure in the painting represents, and I hope the viewers share this feeling.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I usually use Photoshop. Because it is easier to reach and edit, modify. Sometimes when I work in a watercolor, my dumb fingers push ctrl z keys(undo).

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I often come across things in everyday life, and sometimes I come across them. Experience seems to be the best medium for inspiration. For example, among my works, ” Moon Flower ” was inspired by the faded sunflowers. Because I thought the faded sunflowers would wait for the moon.

6. What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

8. Where do you see yourself in five years?

I’d like to draw a lot of pictures with more time. Because now I mainly draw a commercial drawings that reflects the opinions of the client. I want to draw with more imagination than now and draw my pictures.

10. What do you hope to achieve with your art?

It was hard to imagine myself becoming an artist when I was young. But now I’m drawing and I’m just surprised that it’s being accepted by people. Let’s hope to become an artist who can show more people and gain sympathy from more people.

Before becoming an illustrator, I worked briefly on translating Japanese documents related to Japanese colonial era. If I had not become an illustrator, I would continue to do it or I would work in a trading company.
