My Work Style

Why craftzdog?:

It's an abbreviation for 'craftsman' + 'dog'. My avatar is dog icon for long time since I've started publishing my works on the internet. I love craftsmanship, I'd be a craftsman. That's why I decided to call myself 'craftsdog' but this username was already taken by someone on Twitter. So I'm using craftzdog as my internet identity now.

My old handle name is 'noradaiko'. I changed it because it's hard to remember especially for non-Japanese speakers.
