The artist draws each page off the top of his head. Scenes in everyday life suddenly turn into a story about a girl’s dream. The pieces were drawn every day at a coffee shop with a ballpoint pen and a brush pen. No specific story is in the mind of the artist as he begins drawing. No draft or modification is done to let the artist freely express his imagination on each page, just like a picture diary.
