Discover Nikkei interview

Posted on December 21, 2023

Mid-November, my interview with Lee Tonouchi, a local writer/playwright for Discover Nikkei went live! 

Discover Nikkei is a site dedicated to tell the stories of Japanese migrants around the world and their descendants. My grandparents & great-grandparents came to Hawaii from different parts of Japan and established roots that still influence me to this day thru family traditions, stories, food and more~

We have a long chat about my beginnings, how I got into art and comics and a little about the start of nemu*nemu and my working relationship with Scott all these years. :D

Maui Strong Steam Sale

Posted on December 18, 2023

It's been four months in the making, but it's finally gone live!


Maui Strong Steam Sale, Presented by KOMODO Hawai'i

KOMODO Hawai'i pooled their resources to put together one of their largest Steam sales, featuring titles from Capcom, DANGEN Entertainment, Devolver, Shuieisha, SNK, Spike Chunsoft, TAITO and more to assist the MAUI STRONG FUND, an ongoing effort to help Lahaina after the devestating August wildfires. 

I'm so honored participate with a few illustrations to help promote the sale~ I've even added a few cameos in my main sale image. XD


Visit the Steam sales page to find some deals, for a good cause! The sale will run until December 21st, 8am Hawai'i Time.
