My most important worktool is the notebook - in notebooks I record ideas for new stories and characters as well as express my thoughts and emotions. This is also how my first book as a writer got started: out of nameless, furious drawings I made in my biggest notebooks. RUUSUN MATKA will come out in October 2018. I enjoy drawing with sakura crayons and oil pastels, watercolor and ink, as well as with wacom board. I wish to keep the free spirit of sketching in the final illustrations as well.
