    Q&A

    How did you get into drawing?

    I have been drawing on the backs of leaflets and calendars since I came into being, so there isn’t a particular event that got me into it. The catalyst that got me into drawing on the computer was using Adobe Illustrator in class when I attended a technical school. I really got into it due to the sensation of “creating form using paths” that differed from “drawing” with a pencil.

    What are you particular about in your work?

    I decide on the color and composition through trial and error.

    ...It worries me that despite it being trial and error, I end up completing it like it’s no big deal...

    How long does your work take to create?

    For works done in my spare time, the rough draft is completed for many in as little as 3 days or as long as about a month if I’m worried about this and that. If I create an actual work from the draft after it’s done, I end up completing it in about three days, but… I usually spend most of the time on the draft (though I want to shorten this time).

    When do you come up with ideas for your work?

    At my destination, when I go shopping––there are many times, but I am generally struck with ideas when I’m out of the house. After this, though cliche, is seeing sakura blossoms and rape blossoms in the spring, tropical fish and hibiscus in the summer...I have a wanting to draw illustrations themed after whatever season it happens to be.
