I remember my mother telling me I was born with a pencil in my hand. I knew she was joking but she did manage to save all my doodles that I created when I was just 3 years old. It would only be a couple years later that I would proclaim my life's ambition to be an artist (and I was only in kindergarten). Since then I had doodled and trained in high school and college in order to improve my craft. And even after college while I find myself trying to improve even more, I landed some fun art related jobs in Japan's Video Game and Animation industry as a concept artist, illustrator, Photographer and even a package designer. Right now I'm currently focusing on the western aspect of my craft and hoping to work in the US's mainstream comic book industry.
