8 Questions to Genereight : an interview of Charles Tsunashima

I am now a writer for the seminal, Japan-based magazine SHIFT, which has been covering creative culture since 1997. As an early reader of SHIFT—when I was beginning my professional career and perusing pioneering design portals online—it is an emotional privilege to now contribute to its publication.

My first article is an interview of Charles Tsunashima, founder of genereight. I have known Charles since childhood, at which time he was the only bonafide designer that I knew and hence, by default, the best. I have since attended a design college, worked for 14 years in the field and he remains the best I know.

New Stories for Newtown

I had the great pleasure of joining fellow illustrators for the wonderful New Stories for Newtown event in Newtown, Connecticut, to spend the day with the town’s children and create portraits of their stuffed animals. Many thanks to all of the parents and childrens for their enthusiasm and patience, and to the event organizers for their hospitality and help.

Drawing Natalie the seal, with her owner. PS: Apologies for writing the animal’s name with an “h” on the drawing, misguided by the name’s French spelling!
