    This is a girl wrapped up in stars. She is my kanban musume (a pretty girl that attracts business). I was attentive to the illustration’s aura.

    Creator Interview

    How did you happen upon drawing?

    From around the time I was in kindergarten, I drew the characters from various anime that I liked. Then when I was in middle school, I joined a manga research club. From high school, I reached the point of wanting to seriously draw as an occupation. Now, I have attained that aspiration.

    What are you picky about?

    While I am drawing girls, I think kawaii kawaii, and when I am drawing boys, I think cool cool. Particularly when I draw girls, I become fanatic and absorbed. For the rest, I make sure to draw in a good mood as much as possible while listening to music.

    How long does it take to complete a work?

    A rough sketch can take 10 minutes to an hour and coloring can take four to eight hours. Particularly elaborate poses and details are tough to complete in a short time, so those end up taking a long time.

    How do you come up with your ideas?

    Ideas are often born from something I see when watching an anime, reading a manga, or shopping in a clothing store. Other works are also a big influence.
