100% Soft is based in Southern California, and in non-COVID-19 times, this Marvel Blog reporter has even had the very pleasant experience of meeting him in person at WonderCon! In spite of his huge talent and success, he is very down-to-earth, polite, and approachable.
You can learn more about him, see more of his work (including projects he’s done for Lucasfilm and many other properties), and see some of his merch in action (including masks patterned with adorable Kawaii patterns on them), by checking out his website or going to the next con!
You should follow @100soft on Twitter too. You can keep up to date on all your latest MCU Kawaii emojis because Torrence will regularly Tweet to inform you of the most recently released emoji, as well as the shortcuts you can use to access them. This means that by following him, you can keep up on all the latest emoji, which are released throughout the streaming schedule for the Disney+ MCU shows (so as to avoid spoilers).
