Award winning Japanese illustrator based in New York City and instructor at School of Visual Arts.


Just finished adding 5 new illustrations to the site. Between January and April when I teach 2 classes at SVA I can seldom find time to update my site, or do anything else other than work. I am sure this site gets updated more often once school year ends. Sorry!

So, for the same reason, I had to turn down everyone who contacted me to do interview for school project. As a teacher myself, I wish I can help students as much as possible, but it has just been impossible. I am hoping to add FAQ section mainly for students sometime in near future. Thanks so much for understanding.
