Whenever I get frustrated or feel down, I draw a lot of butts to calm my mind.

The apartment I live in alone is my studio. A guy downstairs often yell “So loud, shut up!!!” at me and outside, but I don’t know what’s so loud. I’m scared.
WHAT ARE YOU CURRENTLY WORKING ON?
I’ve been working on an original short film with MIYU productions in France, and it’s finished just last month. The title is “I’m Late” and It is an animated documentary that focuses on the experiences of people missing their period or being “late”
