I'm a self-taught artist, photographer and mangaka (comic creator). I've been creating art for as long as I can remember. I draw manga by hand using pencils, multiliner pens, PC and color either digitally, with markers or color pencils. Time it takes to complete a chapter is about three months. Making manga is challenging, but fun! My inspiration comes from music, nature, animals, folktales and ancient cultures. I live in the countryside of Upstate New York. The serenity and beauty of this area helps to inspire me to create art and the world of Ronin Yoshino (my original manga/comic book series).
