September 10, 2019Interview article on website/UNMIXLOVE

I received an interview by Yasuo Yoshikawa. I felt he is a very kind and friendly person. More surprisingly, I could feel relux even it was my first time to meet him. Yoshikawa san is very much talented to pull out the internal feeling and good motivation of personnel, I think, that is maybe brought from his experience of making up many people. I’m glad if you look the article!

On Sparkling eyes

 

In recent years, more and more news about inhuman child abuse is reaching me. I feel deeply grieved over the present situation where some child abuse cases will come out only after losing such children’s lives, and over the fact that many children are bearing harsh abuses even just now.

Furthermore, under the circumstances where more foreign workers are employed, educational environments for the children of foreign residents have not been improved. I feel bitterly disappointed with such usual situations where the problems of child education are left unattended to. Turning our attention to overseas circumstances finds immigration issues and poverty issues becoming more pressing to make educational environments for children change drastically.

Although civilization has developed to make living comfortable, a human being’s mind has become too much occupied with his/her own affairs and both adults and children are suffering stress in this contemporary society, making how we should build the future a big challenge.

I execute works on the themes of “love and children (the future).” Children in my works think of nature and the universe as well as “What the human beings are?” These days people are easily swayed by the thought of immediate profit in their busy daily life. I am happy if my works become a moment for someone to gaze into the far future.

What kind of scenery will the big Sparkling eyes gazing into the future reflect from now on? Only we adults can protect such beautiful eyes. I earnestly wish to stay close to the hearts of those who watch my works filled with tender love and to enrich their hearts. I will be executing my works hoping the whole world filled with some love and peace.

February 01, 2019Posting Announcement on Website

【Posting Announcement on Website】

My work, its usage and a creation video were put on the website for Orenz 0.2mm (a mechanical pencil) of Pentel, a Japanese stationery company.

This mechanical pencil is usable without an anxiety of a lead brokerage despite an extra-fine lead of 0.2mm. I always use this mechanical pencil in transcribing my designs. The composition of a work may change if the position becomes misaligned, even by 1mm, during transcribing it. Therefore, I have been looking for a no-break mechanical pencil. I’ll continue to use this regularly.
