───Would you mind share about your lifestyle?

Almost I work at part-time, and I draw on the weekend when I have a commission. Other than that, I would play games, or draw anything I like, I do what I love.

───Please tell us about works that have influenced you.

The one who influenced me was the illustrator Mr. Hidari. His illustrations have detailed descriptions and delicate textures. His paintings of men and women regardless of age, especially the gentle description of girls had a great influence on me when I was still a primary school student.

───What is the most impressive work you have drawn so far? Is there any story in its creation?

It's this work.

It's a bit embarrassing, I was being harassed as a student when I drew this work,it was a very painful memory. I was hard to find help, so I drew it in my work... I was very impressed because when I published this work named "Leave me alone", I got a response like never before. Sorry for the dark episode.

───It seems that there are many works with "girls" as the motif in your works. What is the most persistent part of your creation?

There is no particular attachment, but I feel that I am easily dominated by emotions. so , my emotions will be reflected when I create, Through the works, the things I feel or the longing are transformed into tangibles. Therefore, it might be easier to create if the model is a girl.
