I stress about a lot of things while drawing and one of them is lids. Senku stores a bunch of science stuff in bottles and pots, but I often don't know what to do about the lids...

I also altered the way Senku's rocket operated by matching it to his age and technical capabilities.

Wood and stone tools and the way the characters use them are drawn differently depending on their time periods. The same is true of the village's details.

I always think hard about this stuff so I don't ruin Inagaki Sensei's amazing story but there are plenty of times where I end up feeling disappointed because I don't have the time or talent.

I've drawn sci-fi manga, studied physics and read about a thousand books on science, yet I'm always blown away by Dr. Stone's faithful portrayal of science. It fills me with a sense of wonder and reminds me of my own inadequacy.

I went to a glass workshop to try crafting some glassware! Basically it's like super soft clay and really fun!

It filled me with this feeling, like I could make anything and everything, once I got the hang of it.

I have no doubt that if a genuine artisan saw glass for the first time, he or she would would love to get their hands on some.

Therefore, Kaseki's reaction felt really natural to me.
