"For my ink drawings I use Sakura Micron pens, all different thicknesses- from 005 to 08. Other than that, I stick to graphite + black/white pencils and also drawing digitally on photoshop… First I sketch and get the basic details with pencil- i also build a base with graphite (mostly just shadows). Then I scan my work in and edit digitally:) I’m Japanese but live in New York right now."
