  • The Recollection

    I drew this picture based on a scene of an afterschool confession that I still remember clearly.

  • Peacefulness to You

    I drew this picture in the hope that it would deliver a relieving peacefulness and a smile to those who see it. This is a "return to origins" picture to me.

  • Output Your World

    A picture of the Vocaloids I love. I designed the clothes to be uniform-style, and I resolutely crammed in some sci-fi atmosphere, which I haven't drawn in a while.

  • Astronaut and Girl

    I had an urge to draw this picture when I was watching the MV for "Uchuuhikoushi e no Tegami" by Bump of Chicken. I drew its world to be reminiscent of the works of Makoto Shinkai, a director I love.

  • The Emotional World

    Another picture of my beloved Vocaloids. Among all the pictures I've drawn until now, this has received the most support, and it became a work of strong emotional attachment to me. I used up all the power I had at that time both for the background and the characters.

About Me

Kazeno

Illustrator / Japan

I am 23 years old, and regardless of the fact that I couldn’t draw at all, I went to a technical school for graphics and aimed to become an illustrator. After having experienced a full-time job at an animation background studio and a part-time job at a game company where I was doing 2D main designs, I became a freelance illustrator.

Fixations:
Day after day, I devote myself to drawing pictures that would make the viewers enjoy them, to feel warmth, and to slip a grin sometimes. Also, my main subject is black-haired girls in school uniforms.

I draw mostly original illustrations, for copyright stuff I often draw Vocaloids.

    Q&A

    How did you get into drawing?

    I drew a lot when I was a child, but then I wanted to pursue music,
    so I completely stopped drawing for a while.
    However, I couldn't throw away my aspirations for the world of pictures,
    and so I started drawing again when I turned 23.

    What are your fixations?

    I drew my pictures with two main themes, that is, pretty Japanese black hair and charming high school girls who are somewhere between girls and women.
    Also, for smaller details I pay attention to express "wind," part of my pen name, in the picture.

    How long does it take to create your work?

    Just the characters take up about 6 hours, and just the background takes 3-6 hours, so I can make one in maybe 10-15 hours. Thinking about the contents probably takes up more time than the drawing itself.

    When do you come up with your ideas?

    When I take a walk around my apartment, look at other people's pictures,
    watch movies or anime, play games, and listen to music, maybe?
