I used to make lots of drawings and paintings in my school years. Playing guitar and singing in a band till my university years.
Then….long and dark age of artistic inactivity. It was painful. I fooled myself that this is real life…Maybe you have a similar experience.
One day, (I was in Japan already) I woke up from the “silent resignation” and bought myself a piano.
In February 2004, I enrolled to a private piano school together with other elementary school children.
I learned piano from zero, just like other school kids.
I was 42. Talk about “too late” or “too old”.
Playing classical piano is one of the happiest and most peaceful moments.
Next children’s concert was in May 2006, I played 4 hands with my piano teacher.
I also had a dream to learn opera singing.
Since long time ago I was captivated by Italian opera and ancient Italian arias (Arie antiche Italiane).
But I had no clue how to produce such huge and large-scale voice, as the only thing I was ever singing was rock’n’roll….
In Summer 2005 my piano teacher introduced me to opera singing teacher.
Opera teacher taught me how to breathe, how to exercise the body and we worked on improving my voice step by step.
I was 43! Talk about “too old” or “too late”.
In December 2006 I was on the stage singing Italian Aria. What a feeling!
Here in Japan once you start private piano lessons teacher will ask you to attend children’s concert.
It is fun and I really learn a lot from the kids every time.
They are such small fantastic geniuses. Every one of them.
My next concert was in November 2008.
Now, I am bringing into reality my dream about drawing.
I started to build this website in September 2008.
I was 46! Talk about “too old” or “too late”.
Physical age is only a state of mind nothing more.
We all create our reality how we feel inside and what we believe is possible.
It is that simple. What do you believe is possible for yourself?
I tell you: whatever you can imagine.
I always wanted to be active online but had no clue of how to do it.
Internet marketing or affiliate businesses, etc was very tempting but I felt it would be just another “online job” for me, as I know myself.
On the other hand, doing something that I love while enjoying steadily increasing number of visitors tastes very different and tastes much, much better and sweeter.
The reason I make this site is simple; I love to draw and I would love if my drawings inspire or motivate you.
Maybe you are a student who would like to make living by drawing or art.
Maybe you are retired and had no time for yourself for decades.
Maybe you are in the middle of your career that you hate and would like to change directions.
I hope my very short story inspires you especially if you gave up on your dreams because it is just “too late” or because you might think you are just “too old”….or “too young”… Think about it!

I'm not saying that all girls look like this. She's dramatic in the way she dresses and poses, her amount and color of make up and her hair.

Doodled this scared-looking owl in history class. It almost seems like he's afraid of the light.

This represents a character of a book series. The drawing took me three hours, and is my best drawing yet. I used a reference picture.
