Hello, my name is Yuki, but I sometimes go by Killah Tomato (or Killer Tomato) at various places online.
I grew up running around the woods like a little monkey on a small island called Shikoku in Japan. Drawing was always my favorite thing to do any time I wasn’t playing outside with my dog, Tom. I spent a lot of time in a happy bubble with my notebook and pencils.
I left Japan in 1999, mainly to avoid Nostradamus’s predictions for the new millennium. I figured a small island like Japan would sink into the Pacific immediately if an asteroid hit, and that I’d be safer on a big land mass like Canada. So the asteroid thing didn’t happen (yet), but I decided to stay in Vancouver anyway. I’ve been lucky enough to make my living as a CG artist since.
In 2012, I experienced another big change in my life, and this time it wasn’t because of ancient prophecies. I moved to California for a new gig in CG. I’m really excited to see what kind of big adventure awaits me!
