Until now, I have repeatedly drawn the people who are walking on the streets, and tried to extract everyday life and express it through my works, which proves the fact that people existed here. However, due to the influence of Corona, everyday life has changed completely. Everyone are wearing masks and coexisting with the virus, and each person's face became less visible. Even if I draw on the streets like before, I realize that I am always under threat. Even if you look at the people who are laughing, their facial expressions are not clear, and you can hear the hustle and bustle somewhere. Even if I feel lonely sometimes, by continuing drawing people who are surviving and cutting out their daily lives is the proof that they are alive now. 

Because of this time, I would like to continue to create works that face the current situation and may enrich the viewer's days.
