My name is Masayoshi Nakamura, aka Good General, and I am a maker of all sorts of things, but mostly animation. I started out as a motion graphic designer, but now my focus is shifting more toward illustration and animation. Sometimes I direct, art direct, design, or animate, and other times I do all by myself with a little help from very close people. I am known for my moprh-y and swirly animation for some reason, but learning new things on every projects and trying to get better than the last time and trying to archive higher goal. Sharping my craftsmanship over the year and I hope to be really great someday, and each projects help me to be better.
