Carreer  span:
"I always loved to animate so I decided to become an animator... Before I knew it I got to this point. I have had a carreer as an animator for over 20 years now, mainly working freelance, and not belonging to any company or agency. There are still a lot of things that I would like to try though..."

Message to the visitors of

"In my opinion, if you want to make it in the illustrating / animating business, stubborness and the feeling of not wanting to loose at all costs are essential.
Still, you need to be able to just switch it all off sometimes too...
It is difficult.
..but if you just try and try and try, you WILL succeed!"

-Keiji Gotoh, September 2006
