Immigrating from Japan to Honolulu, Hawaii in 1961, Hitoshi Hida struggled to learn English as he excelled in math and painting during high school. Abandoning his desire to be an artist, Hida pursued architecture finding a creative outlet in hand-rendering for nearly 40 years. In a digital world, Hida, 72, is one of the last remaining designers to create hand-drawn architectural renderings in Hawaii.
