I'm a self-taught artist and have been creating art as long as I can remember. I draw manga by hand using pencils, pens, markers, colored pencils, sumi-e, screentones and PC. Time it takes for me to finish a chapter is 4-6 months. Writing/drawing manga is challenging, but fun!
My inspiration comes from nature, music, folktales and ancient cultures. I enjoy drawing, writing, creating manga, photography, filming, sculpting, painting, birding, gaming and taiko drumming. Some of my interests are: animals, nature, anime, festivals, folklore, archeology, paleontology, herbology, homesteading and martial arts. I enjoy being outside in nature as much as possible. My favorite place were I enjoy creating my art is outside in nature.
