Vol.175 Individualist “Chptr 19 and Vrs 1” Project Civ

April has usually been welcoming people for new opportunity or meeting up with new people to freshen up your feeling or let you have a different surroundings. April and even May…. on the other hand, has been giving me a hard time to accept for who I am.  My company that I am working for has one of the weirdest , yet something interesting and unique characteristic to it. Maybe this is unordinary mindset that my directors have compared with anything else. Or is it just me that I cannot be compatible with them. I came to realization that I do not really get along with people who has an attitude of not showing their insecurities. We are all having our insecurities but somehow some people hesitate to show those considered-to-be-a-negative-impact.

渋谷さん) 自分で描いた絵を、主にシルクスクリーンでTシャツに刷っています。



IO) Tell us the story of the movie. 

Shibuya-san) Initially, my theme was more like a SF horror but recently it is all mixed up. My customers often ask about the same question and I tend to say “ I don’t know”. I just do not stick with the story of the movie itself very much.


IO) 映画のストーリーを教えてください。

渋谷さん) 当初はSFホラーをテーマにやっておりましたが、最近はぐちゃぐちゃです。お客さんにもどういう意味ですか?とよく聞かれるのですが、おれもわからないですと答えがちです。そこまでこだわりがないですね。

IO) How did you start to form your own identity? What motivated you?

Shibuya-san) It was when I participated in art event with my friend. I guess the reason would be the fact that I like paint as well as T-shirts so those are naturally came together. I simply like to draw and T-shirts as well so I have always wanted to make my own. I didn’t know how to make one at that time so I wasn’t even looking into it but I started to do that because of the time when my friend and I attended an art event.


IO) ご自身の行い、存在やクリエーションを始めた具体例やきっかけはありますか?

渋谷さん) 友達とアートイベントに参加したのがきっかけ。絵が好きでTシャツも好きだったので。それが合わさった。絵を描くこととTシャツが好きで、昔からTシャツを作りたかった。やり方もよくわからないからやらなかったんですが、友達とアートのイベントに出ることがきっかけで作り始めました。


IO) Who/What inspires you?

Shibuya-san) I think movies and music influenced me a lot. I basically like SF, Horror, and action movies. I wish I could make actual T-shirts based on actual films but I do whatever I want with my own fictional movie.

Music that I’m fond of would be STRUNG OUT, BTBAM, and QUEEN. My T-shirts says verses from my favorite songs from them. Also I would say human being is one of my great source for inspiration. Few of my friends play as a model for my products.

I could say I also like zombies, monsters and some sort but I like people like them way better.


IO) ご自身の姿勢、指針、行動、存在やクリエーションにおいての影響をうけたものは何ですか?(インスピレーション等、具体例。)

渋谷さん) 映画や音楽の影響は大きいですね。映画はSFやホラーやアクションが好きです。本物の映画のTシャツが作れればいいのですが、架空映画で好き勝手やってます。音楽は、STRUNG OUT,BTBAM,QUEENなど。単純に好きな曲を文字にしてTシャツに入れてます。



IO) Your wish for those who appreciate your art/creation/product/ doing, Followers.

Shibuya-san) I hope they like my products and wear them over times.


IO) ご自身の作った作品や行いに関係して頂いた方へ、どのようになって欲しいですか?

渋谷さん) 気に入って着て頂ければ嬉しいですね。

IO) What are your thoughts about trends, your entities current situation, and your product? The future?

Shibuya-san) I do my work by myself so I would love to do however I want with my product.


IO) ご自身の行い、存在やクリエーションのトレンドと傾向やその後の未来像はありますか?

渋谷さん) 自分自身でやっているので好き勝手にやっていきたいです。
