Though his favorite character is Batman, he has a lot of respect for Japanese works, as well. He will rely on his excitement to work with Banpresto to create something the world has never seen.
BM: I was very happy with the invitation. I have long been interested in carving to a company like Banpresto. I’m doing my best in this competition.
BM: I’ve worked for national independent projects, arts in general, comics and manga.
BM: One Piece reminds me of my adolescence. The characters are very cheerful and fun in general. My students love it. I remember this program with nostalgia and to this day it is quite amusing for me.
BM: Teaching is a very special thing for me, because I see in my students who I was 10 years ago. I feel very useful giving sculpture classes. But what I really like is creation: to see the character gradually leave my hands and become something real.
BM: The responsibility is immense, either to create some character or to sculpt some existing one. But both are cool since I have some autonomy in the character.
BM: Batman and Virgo Shaka.
BM: They are especially charismatic and flashy pieces. The modeling and colors are usually very well worked, but maintaining the character’s fantasy and its main characteristics.
BM: This is simply amazing to me. Since I began my career as a sculptor, I dream of having some piece (which I have designed) produced by a company like Banpresto. Since it’s a sculpture of a character I like, it’s such an great opportunity! I am looking forward to seeing this coming true.
