I've been a fan for over 25 years, collecting and reading the manga while I was kid growing up in Asia. Decades later, seeing the work the David Production team has done with the JJBA animated series has been hugely inspiring as a creator.
While none of my previous animations really reflect the influences of JJBA, a JoJo-based project has been a dream of mine since I was kid, however, the original and changing style of Hirohiko Araki was always far above my skill-grade (and, frankly, still is).
While the BSV project is an intimidating undertaking, I've reached a point as an animator and creator where stepping out of my comfort zone seems necessary. And while I've set my sights on working on an original series several times in the past, I've never actually tackled long-form storytelling.
A project that combines one of my greatest inspirations and the ability to grow as a story-teller and artist seems like a natural step (for me) between creating original shorts and an original series.
And so, for however long I can afford to work on Blood Sun Vendetta, I'm excited and mortified to be dedicating myself to a series.
