Still a mystery
Artist | Digital Art
TekuConcept - Electrical, Mechanical, and Computer Engineering Interlaced with some Industrial Design.

"All about the future, progressing technology, and modernized designs."
"Working to make the concepts of the future, now"
"Imagine the impossible - for answers can be inspired by such"

My user-name is a mix of Japanese and English which translates to 'The Concept of Technology.' So why the mix up? Well, Japanese is my favorite language, but I also speak English as well - bi-lingual I guess you could say - and because is sounds awesome!

My logo is patterned after my initials 'CDW', cut symmetrically in half and spliced together. Over time, the 'D' in the logo eventually faded away - which actually made things easier to do in 3D-space. My favorite color combination is of Blue, Black, & White - hence the color scheme.


JLPT Flash Cards by TekuConcept
JLPT Flash Cards
Though learning a language through natural means is the best option, sometimes some good old-fashioned flashcards come in handy!

I own Rosetta Stone for Japanese Levels 1, 2, & 3 and I am glad with what good it has done me. Unfortunately, in order to dive into the full experience and learn a language as fast as they advertise, one must be subscribed to their TOTALe program. (Essentially allowing the users to practice what they've learned with each other - even practice with natives trying to learn the opposite language) Now I could march on, but without that program, I don't feel like I'm making much progress, so...

I built an app that utilizes many similar features found in Rosetta Stone, but that uses the traditional method of memorization: flashcards.

Sadly, building something like this, pictures and all, takes time - a LOT of time! The first time I made my attempt, I needed to transcribe each Romanian scripted word into their respective Hiragana, Katakana, and sometimes even Kanji scripts (there was much time spent determining which kanji symbols were correct too). Then, I set off on a miserably one-week journey gathering pictures - I remember the day well when I finished!
My second attempt [as seen above] was much much better. I came across the five JLPT study lists online, and thankfully they contained a text-formatted and organized comprehensive list of scripts appropriate for each of the vocabulary words. Pictures also only took two to three days [just for JLPT5 - 670 words]!

Though the program has taken around a year to fully develop, I am glad at where it stands now - a useful and user-friendly tool that sustains my feeling of 'making progress'!

I like the art you do, Teku is nothing short of awesome. By the way, I hope you don't find this stupid, but has anyone made a Teku jacket? And where can I buy one?

I wouldn't know...

Just an informative heads up to those out there - my name has no correlation to the Teku team or team name in Acceleracers, a common misconception among most Teku fans I presume, especially with art from Hot Wheels in my portfolio.
It is actually a Japanes-English hybrid trademark. Teku wa nihongo ga tekunologi desu, to boku no namae wa TekuConceputo deshita. Nihon dai suki desu ne? あなたによく望む
