As a sensitive teenager, I really didn’t like his airbrush work, I didn’t understand shiny metalic airbrush of his work is in the Bijyutsu Techou all the time…

Hajime is saying in the interview, he found beauty from Katana and Metal, shiny and pointy, are sexy and cool.
He was the designer of Aibo. I like 1st Aibo’s design that everybody know what “Aibo” is.

I like H.R.Giger, his air brush works are organic and mat, it isn’t shiny like Hajime Sorayama’s airbrush style.

But I am not getting into Ailen films. He designed Ailens ( I like the ailens caractors )….

I like his art work on the book, his art take me so much depth into fantasy world, that I love.

Hajime Sorayama and Giger to me, are very nostalgic and futuristic artists…
Both had breakingpoint of wider audience, because they cross the boundary from their own world.
I can some day 🙂

A tall human-like alien creature stands inside the cargo hold of a spacecraft. It is all black in color, has a long, horizontally configured phallic-shaped head with its long rigid tongue extended, long arms with six digits on each hand, and long tubes protruding from its back.

Tin Coffee…

I don’t think Tin drinks are as popular as other world than Japan…

Just I saw the articl about “1st October is World Coffee Day”, I thought write about this…

Every street we see drinks, tabacco, vending machine hot and cold even very rural area of Japan…
So it is life saver when you are walking outside in cold Winter.

When I was playing tennis without caring about skin condition 🙂 ,

I used to freeze 500ml carton of coffe milk and take with long handle spoon.

It was just great half melted and slushed sweet milk coffee at lunch time in hot Summer day.

We had vending machine everywhere, just saving temptation every time we walk pass.

After swimming, hot dog or cup noodle’s vending machine that we couldn’t tackle against those treat!!

It is so painful to see the World treasure down….

Checking the news in the morning and seeing really sad news…

Becasue we can see the image through the TV, it is almost unreal….like Notre-Dame de Paris fire, 911…

Those things remind me to read again – The Temple of the Golden Pavilion ( Kinkaku-ji by Yukio Mishima translated by Ivan Morris )…

Then there was a fire of KyoAni not long time ago…It is the speach from CEO of Kyoto Animation Studio after 3 months from the incident.

It is so painful to see the image, but so strongly painful and had to write something about it….😢
But seeing the progress is wonderful 👍

Process of design…

Thinking about the design process….
Design = a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment, or other object before it is made.

Design is the skill of making plans or drawings for something:

Design is also the way in which something is arranged or shaped:

to intend for a particular purpose:

(Reference from Cambridge Dictionary)

Just seeing picture above, is only the example.  But seeing all similar idea process.

Using everything put together and arrange to team up, result is beautiful harmony….

I would love to do those jobs as my life time achievement….
