    It takes Isao Hayashiguchi six months to finish a 76.7cm x 108.7cm drawing. First, he draws large faces of people with a brush and Chinese ink. Then he traces a lot of tiny circles with color pencils. One colored circle is added to another, and these layers of circles spread on the paper. Isao Hayashiguchi is also a baseball fan, so he writes one Chinese character of his favorite baseball player’s name over and over again. The multiple layers of the Chinese characters are just as lively and energetic as a baseball game. He also draws members of his family, friends, guests, and baseball players. He only draws people that he loves.
