 I am Takefuji. I am a Designer, Illustrator, Contemporary artist, Island vitalization director in Setouchi Sea, Japan.
I love animals and kawaii things so much.

What does " 竹藤狐 " mean?
In ancient Japan, it was believed that the fox turned into a human being, and lived in human society.
The fox which turned into a human being was called " ■■狐 " with familiarity from people.
"" pronounces "Kitune". "" means "fox" in Kanji.
The "■■" part contains the fox's personal name.
"竹藤" pronounces "Takefuji". So, " 竹藤狐 " means "Takefuji-fox".

"" means "bamboo" in Kanji. "" means "wisteria" in Kanji.
Both are beautiful plants representing Japan. And it is also my favorite plants.
I have been using the name "Takefuji" for over 10 years.
I think that... "The human world is not beautiful, so we need a beautiful fantasy."
And...from ancient times it is believed that fox is an animal that uses a lot of magic in Japan.
That is..... I am a "fox" and studied the "magic of art" in Kyoto, Japan. And I would like to show you "magic" if you wish.
