My family has always called me by my middle name, Fuji or Fujiye, after my maternal grandmother. I was born and raised in Denver, Colorado and spent the last decade living and working in Oakland, CA. I moved back to Denver about 2 years ago and it's been very interesting to see how things have changed.
"So, what do you rap about?"
I'm a hapa otaku who has worked as an illustrator and with animals/rescues for many years and that is something I can truthfully speak about. I love telling bold, true stories like in my comics then bring them to life in music videos where I can cosplay the fuck outta them. Filmmaking has always been a huge passion of mine.
Specific inspirations range from old school anime/manga like (Battle Angel Alita, BERSERK, Cowboy Bebop, Neon Genesis Evangelion, Sailormoon and DBZ etc) to abolishment, human/animal rights and hidden pre-history.
"What kinds of illustration do you do?"
Comics, especially short stories in ink and mixed media are my favorite. I also am passionate about fashion illustration, character designs, pet portraits and custom tattoo designs.
