TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT YOUR BACKGROUND AS A CREATOR:
ZW: I read an article in a magazine introducing how to make simple models and tried it when I was 17. It was my first try so it didn’t turn out that great but it seeded my interest for “Figure Creation”. I came across stone powder clay in 2013 and decided to give figure creation another shot and this time I was successful. This challenge I gave myself bloomed my interest toward figure creation and gave me the courage to go down the path of a professional modeler.
PLEASE EXPLAIN A PRODUCT, WORK, ETC. IN WHICH YOU WERE INVOLVED THAT HAS A SPECIAL PLACE IN YOUR HEART.
ZW: I’d like to say my next project but currently it is Mossel Kar98k from Girls’ Frontline.

WHAT IS YOUR IMPRESSION OF JAPANESE FIGURES OR CREATORS?
ZW: Japanese figures use a variety of parts and delicate techniques along with a very creative imagination to create works that have outstanding express-ability and realism.
The Japanese creators all have their own unique characteristics such as Ryu Oyama, a dynamic creator, and Satoshi Today, a very delicate type who focuses on recreation.
Both types are passionate about their work and a hunger to committing to their goals which fascinates me.
