I wanted to live with a picture

-The interview with illustrator Walnut today. I asked you to go out and travel, so I decided to listen to the story while doing it. Well, then, I'm looking forward to working with you.

Illustrator Walnut


-Speaking of WALNUT, a sketch series "WALSKETCH" that cut a piece of trains and restaurants._Is popular.

Walnut:I often sketch my uncle sitting opposite the train and the wonderful couples I saw at the restaurant.


―What kind of people are selected as a sketch model?

Walnut:In the case of a train series, I often choose people who are looking at smartphones and reading so that they do not have a sketch.

- (Look at the grandmother who is crazy about the story on the park bench) Isn't that easy sketching?

Walnut:indeed! I'm crazy about the story, so I don't think it's barre.

-I'm jealous of those who are accidentally sketched by Walnut. I want you to draw too ...

Walnut:Shall I draw?

-picture! Is that ok! ? happy! Shall we sit on the bench there? I will ask you to continue the story while drawing.


It seems that WALNUT has "WALSKETCH_". Luxurious time!


-By the way, what did you start sketching by train?

Walnut:I started as a training to grab the shape of things in a short time.

-I see. Trying to go to art since childhood?

Walnut:I've always liked painting. For this reason, I chose a school with an art course from high school and went on to the University of Fine University. I don't know if I can eat it with a picture, but I always had the desire to live and live.

-And now, he has been active as an illustrator.

Walnut:Thankfully. But I didn't expect to be an illustrator. Even after deciding to do this job, I don't know much about what kind of work the illustrator is and how the story comes.

―It was a start from zero. Now you live on your favorite picture, such as being in charge of the famous artist's goods design.

Walnut:I often have my favorite things and things lead to work. In addition to drawing illustrations, I also like traveling, but sometimes I work with artists from various countries and visit that country. It's a lot of fun to have interest leads to work.

-Is there any tips to make "like" work?

Walnut:what do you want. If you are just doing what you like and what you like, you feel like this. But maybe it's aggressive to send "like".

-Do you post to SNS?

Walnut:yes. That may be a trigger to get to know. Alright, the sketch is completed.

-Whh, I'm really impressed. thank you! Even so, it is drawn in a really short time.

Walnut:I agree.

-It is important to continue.


With the story of the trip in the design

-There are about collaboration watches. What kind of theme was designed?

Walnut:Designed on the theme of "I want to see a wider world". I myself like traveling and jumping out, so I want to make a design that can push the back of those with such thoughts. In the sense of "pressing the back", the girl drawn on the dial is turned on the back.

-It looks like you're looking at another world different from now, and it's a design like Walnut. The dial does not contain the number to represent time.

Walnut:I was very worried about putting the numbers. But I didn't want to enjoy the moment without being bound by time.

-You had a wonderful message. Is there any message in the illustration on the belt?

Walnut:Travel to an unknown place to see a wide world. Occasionally, people with various styles and wonderful scenery are encountered while being hit by trouble and happening. In such a way, I design with the desire to enjoy my daily life.

-Is the story of the trip was drawn? The star mark drawn under the illustration of the earth was a problem.

Walnut:That's right. Because there is a problem with the trip.

―Walnut also had a problem?

Walnut:There are many times.

-Do many times! I'm curious. Then, in the second part, let's dig deeper into the thoughts of the collaboration watch based on the episode of Walnut's journey. Thank you for the second part!
