He has a studio in Kyoto and paints each day. Since it requires a lot of detailed work and demands a lot of focus, he only paints between 3 and 5 images a day. He takes orders online and gets them from all around the world. When he goes abroad, he goes most often to art museums in Florida for small exhibits, performances, and galleries. He also goes to Mongolia and the Philippines. In the Philippines, he does charities with a government official there, and they donate all the money from sales to charities.
Hitofude-ryu is a traditional technique passed down since the Edo period in Japan where the artist draws the entire torso of a dragon in a single stroke. Because of this, it has been used as a good luck charm for endless money, customers, and romantic relationships. Dragons that face upwards are said to bring luck while those that face downwards are said to protect. The dragon's scales appear when he presses down hard and light in small spurts. His personal touch is to add "bonji" characters of a god that matches the customer to the dragon's jewel. For example, if the customer is in retail, He'll draw the bonji of a merchant god, or if they are sick and want to wish for good health, he draws the bonji of a healing god.
