i'm ema with one m!

I am a Japanese-American illustrator and comic artist based in Northern California. I am currently pursuing a BFA degree in Animation/Illustration at San Jose State University, with a concentration in Story.I am also active in the V-tuber (virtual streamer) industry as a 2D character artist, Live2D avatar rigger, and streamer.I love writing stories that explore deep interpersonal relationships and the struggles in navigating them. My current project, ELEGY, is an action drama series which peers into such struggles through the lens of video games and high school students.In my free time, I enjoy watching and analyzing films, sketching at cafes, playing story-focused games, and volunteering at my local cat adoption center.
