“I have been working as a part of the art team doing backgrounds for the new feature length animated movie by Shinkai Makoto titled “君の名は。” (Kimino Na Wa – Your Name is…) due to be released summer 2016.

You can see three of the backgrounds I did so far featured in the official trailer (I took YouTube screenshots below).”

“The original story for “Right Places” was made as an animation storytelling challenge in the summer of 2011, thus animatic, script and storyboards for the long version where made. However, being a one-man-team, I decided that I will realize only a part of the story in form of a short trailer aiming for the highest quality of backgrounds and animation I could muster at that time. Learning a lot along the way I finished the first 40 seconds short trailer in march 2012.
After good response from Japanese animation industry I began working on the full length version which I finished in the December of 2012.”

“A new TV commercial directed by Yoshitoshi Shinomiya titled “Mottainai”, produced for a joint campaign by NHK and Advertising Council Japan (AC Japan).

“Mottainai” is a term which conveys a sense of regret concerning waste, both physical waste and wasteful action.
I was in charge of the backgrounds for this short animation and painted most of them myself.”
