Big little news? Linc has a new title...
Heya Brobots! Together with my lovely family, on the right, we met with our wonderful friends Mr and Mrs Yokoyama in Tokyo to catch up over coffee and yes, there was cake!
Kow Yokoyama Sensei is the creator of the Maschinen Krieger universe and the Ma.K kits you will often see in my content and tutorial videos. I worked for his studio for quite a few years as both model maker/painter artist and writer. But really, what I was doing was learning. Learning about life in Japan, the language and business and how to become a commercial artist as a professional modeller.
Today, out of nowhere and most surprisingly, Kow Yokoyama Sensei announced to us, "It's time. Now you are the official international ambassador for Maschinen Krieger. We will call you 'Linc Sensei". "
Stunned and speechless. After some very long seconds, all I could muster was a croaked, "Sensei, arigatou gozaimashita.... ganbarimasu!"
"Sensei, thank you very much... I'll do my best!"
Just so much wow right?
Please rest assured, this is not a "job" or anything that changes what I do, so much as the work that I will continue to do is now considered official and supported by Kow Yokoyama Sensei and seeing as it's his property, well, that's not a bad thing at all! It helps me to make more content featuring Ma.K including videos and physical publications with Sensei's blessings.
I'll still continue to work on Gunpla and other topics and genres the same as now, in fact Sensei is quite happy about that because's it's increasing sales of Ma.K. Enabling at it's best I guess, haha!
More updates soon, hope you are as happy about this as we are.
