Humanity between the lines: Tsubame in Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

“I realised something working on it. That to me, life is about working on stuff like this. And there’s nothing I can do about that, now.”

Tsubame on falling in love with animation in Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!

I was still at school when I realised what I wanted to do with my life, that I wanted to make websites. I was never worried about it, I never questioned it, it was just what I was going to do. Like Tsubame drawing on her tablet deep into the night, I’d find myself writing code at every opportunity, my dark room lit by the computer’s screen, totally immersed. This played out again and again. Sometimes without even realising it, you’re doing it because you love it, because there’s a deep part of yourself being nourished, like a sun that’s always shining, it becomes something that you don’t want to let go.
