Original container for WS

During winter time, we are preparing for our art projects in summer time.
 This time, I would like to introduce this.
We are trying to  make original containers for art workshops.
We used to use common plastic pencil cases for color pencils, color felt pens, etc.
  We got some beautiful left over natural leather at Material For The Arts by chance.
One of staff Yukiyo is making some trial model of original containers.

Looks so cool! Thanks Yukiyo!
Thanks Material For The Arts!

Happy New Year 2018!

Happy New Year 2018!

I hope your 2018 will be super happy, lucky, and awesome to you, your family and all your surrounding friends!

One thing I forgot to tell you last year is that I appeared in a video of New York Foundation for the Arts.
This video is for website marketing to introduce NYFA’s service for artists in all discipline.

During the shooting, I was very nervous because the other two artists had own studios, but I still didn’t have it. Also, I felt like I didn’t speak English well enough to such an official video. A director shot me at a pick nick table at a park where I always worked on pencil sketches of Manga comic work. I was really nervous even after finishing the shooting. I regret not exercising speech in English. When the video was released, I was surprised the whole work looked really cool. I hope you will enjoy the video!
