NAKANO Shizuka [Japan]
Short stories related to the topic of yards, which are so familiar yet inexplicably delightful. Yards are made of things from nature yet are artificial and always connected to people. A variety of stories originating from this idea are portrayed through an analog drawing method and screen tones, creating originality and depth. They leave a resonance with readers who realize that we, too, have some unexpectedly niche thoughts about yards.
