2. Tell us about your aesthetic.

I like to draw what I see while traveling or what I find in everyday life. I think it’s great to draw a landmark that I saw on a trip too. But I found happiness in the way people live, in an ordinary way, in the little things that make up those people. Our daily lives feel normal, but I wanted to find something special in our lives. So I started drawing what I saw and felt in my daily life and on my travels.

3. What is your favourite medium and why?

I like to draw with coloured pencils. (Of course, other tools are very good, too.) When you draw with coloured pencils, you can see a variety of lines and expressions depending on our feelings. And depending on the thickness of the colored pencils, the feel of the paintings varies a lot. So, I think it is attractive because I can draw more slowly and calmly when I use coloured pencils.

4. What is your artistic process like?

If it was a travel, I draw reference to the picture I took. And if it was my daily life, I remember or take notes of the moment that I want to draw and then draw with colored pencils. But colors don’t paint in real colors. I change the colors based on my feelings. And I also change the colors to make the artwork looks more harmonious. (That doesn’t change all of the colors in the original, it’s part of it.) Then, I scan the artwork or take a picture and use Photoshop to remove the blemishes on the paper or the powder of the colour pencils. Then the artwork is finished.

5. Who and/or what inspires your work?

I most inspired by travel and daily life. I often feel warm and special in everything that I see on my walk. So that’s why I think I’m inspired when I find something special in the warmth of travel and daily life.

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

For me, art makes my memories more beautiful. And through the art I drew, it makes people feel various emotions. So I think it allows people to see the life they live in more warmly.

8. Where do you see yourself in five years?

Five years from now, I think I’m going to travel around the world to draw my own illustration book. Maybe I’m going to draw illustrations of everything I’ve seen in my travels. So I want to make many people feel cozy through my illustration.
And I have a plan to make my artworks into a variety of products So I want more people to approach my artworks comfortably.

9. What about in ten?

For now, there are so many I want to do. And there’s a lot of thinking, too. So I want to be a wiser and a calmer person through experience of 10 years. So I hope such experiences will be reflected in my illustrations. Also, I will always be a growing illustrator.
