His original design techniques have made him an up-and-coming designer drawing attention worldwide.
I was born and raised on Ishigaki-shima, but I wanted to express something new, and found myself in Tokyo before I knew it. Up until now I have mostly centered on graphic design for t-shirts and apparel, and the characters I created have spread to Asia and Europe. The appeal of Ishigaki is that it is rustic and unchanging, but I think what I was influenced by are the colors of the island. I want to continue creating new pieces, with a focus on things that are newer and stronger.
Born on Ishigaki-shima, he now lives in Tokyo. He works on graphic design for t-shirts and apparel, and the characters I created have spread to Asia and Europe, gathering attention as he does collaborations with other artists.
