Muneto Ashizawa, creator of the popular cat character "Futeneko"

人気ネコキャラ「フテネコ」の作者ー芦沢ムネト

Nice to meet you.
My name is Fumika Mabuchi.

Currently, I am working on the web while raising my 1-year-old son.
Due to childcare and this age, I am currently refraining from activities, but before giving birth, I was active as an actress on TV and on stage.

The other day, I had a chance to write an article here!

Although I am neither from Kanagawa nor do I live there, my husband's family lives in Kamakura, so I visit there from time to time. I won't say that much because I'm likely to get tsukkomi from various quarters), but I have a relatively close relationship.

Although I am such a person, I would like to introduce people and things related to Kanagawa Prefecture.

Let's start with the story of my husband, who is most familiar with Kanagawa.
But it's not like I'm infatuated or anything like that lol.

My name is Muneto Ashizawa.
As mentioned earlier, his parents' house is in Kamakura, and he himself lived in Center Kita for about 10 years after graduating from high school.

"What is your husband doing?"
This question is the hardest to answer...

"Well, my main business is comedy, but I also draw illustrations, MC music events, sometimes act, and recently I'm also a radio personality."
And like this, it seems to be long every time.

I'm doing all kinds of things! smile

I posted this illustration on Twitter, and a lot of people came to know about it when a cat lover, such as a friend of a musician, RTed it.

At first, I used a pencil or a heat-erasable pen called Friction to write, but now I use an iPad to draw things like this.

At that time, the illustrations took off on their own, and even if I did a solo exhibition, people wouldn't notice me. I've been doing a lot of different things, such as events, and recently MC for music distribution programs.

Main business? The comedy has started to be transmitted in an interesting form since last year!
It's getting long, so this is for the next time.
