I have a carpenter friend whose family name is Kaneko, and who we call Kaneko-san. So close to Konekosan I did a double take. What inspired your SG name?

Koneko San means "miss kitten". Long story short, I would make realistic meows through the Starbucks drive thru when I was a barista for a few years. Had a co-barista who would do the same thing and we would talk through our meows, lol. She started calling me "Kitten". And since I am a lover of Japanese culture and language, I started the alias "Koneko San". Of all the nicknames ever bestowed upon me (and I had a lot), that one had the biggest following. Even my mom calls me that, and it just kind of became my official-unofficial alias as an artist.

Suits you perfectly, great story too. I have a thing for Japanese craft and culture myself. Also yeah, those eyes. Holy crap!
