Meet the correspondents: LOS ANGELES > Shiho Nakaza

"Hello, my name is Shiho Nakaza. I've been drawing since I was three, and I am still drawing to this day.

My taste for sketching was piqued when I started studying animation and went on a drawing class to Italy. Once I started to put pen on paper to record what I saw, I fell in love with being able to see what is happening around me while interpreting the events within me, all the while making lines on paper.

When I came back home to Los Angeles, I continued to sketch while pursuing a career in print production and illustration. In the process, I have learned to appreciate my city with its quirks and beauty — people of multiple cultures, buildings with various architectural styles, nature that thrives despite the city setting, all usually within the same place. The near-perfect weather most of the year also makes Los Angeles my favorite place to sketch!"
