Hello! I'm Yaka Hara.

I am an animator/illustrator grew up in Nagano, Japan, and Hong Kong. I enjoy drawing animals, people, nature, etc. I also thoroughly enjoy making 2D animation and stop motion animation and motion graphics. When I'm not drawing, I spend most of my time reading, watching movies, watering my plants or drinking coffee. I studied design at Tama Art University in Tokyo and currently learning character animation at Central Saint Martins.
