    I was born in Kumamoto and grew up in Kagoshima. In an age where everyone is using a computer, I am one of the last few computer illiterates on this planet! I still use an airbrush for my illustrations. However, thanks to IT expansions, I am really happy that this generation of kids can see my work. I love drawing monsters, giants and unusual animals. Because I grew up near the ocean, it is easy for me to draw fish and creatures from the sea. I hope that someday, if I have the opportunity to come across a good space story, that I will have the chance to draw beings from other planets!
