INTERVIEW

How do you feel about participating in the BANPRESTO WORLD FIGURE COLOSSEUM 2018?

I can’t believe I was called again. It is like a dream all over again.

Of all the art forms, why did you pick sculpting or become a sculptor?

Because sculpting is tangible, it lets me see my creations from every angle, and I can feel my art, and hold it in my hands.

How do you feel about the franchise for which you selected?

Dragon Ball touched my heart as a young man, and being able to reproduce the art of Akira Toriyama is one of the greatest honors and achievements of my career.

Tell us the reason why you chose the character you did. (And why did you pose it that way?)

I chose Trunks sitting at Kami’s Lookout, because it is based on the artwork by Mr. Toriyama, an extremely iconic representation of Trunks. It has never been done before I believe, and I wanted to be the one to bring it to life.

What makes your style of sculpting unique?

My style is a combination of many different styles, specifically manga/anime, and with a very strong touch of American comic book style.

If you were a Dragon Ball character who would you be? And why?

I would be Goku…. always learning, always trying to improve, and always making new friends.

How do you feel about the other contestants?

I feel they are some of the most amazing human beings I have ever met. They are very kind, and are all extremely talented artists. It is quite an honor for me to just be able to meet them, and be able to learn form their work.

Is there anything you like to say to your fans?

Well, I don’t see them as fans, I see them as friends that support my art. I am very thankful to you all for supporting my career throughout 24 years.
