PingMag carries a somewhat inspiring interview with the only foreign toy designer in Japan — and he designs Transformers!
How do you usually start with the creation process?
I put on my headphones, listen to music and close my eyes – and most of the stuff is in my head. When I was a kid I spent hours and hours with LEGO. I would go to bed and still be thinking of LEGO in my head.
Really? No 3D software involved?
No, I draw everything on millimetre paper, including every part. It is all in my head!
