    Toshiharu Okamoto’s first source of creativity was his love for trucks. He loved trucks so much that he began drawing pictures or making clay figures of them. Recently, he started to diversify his subjects, drawing people or landscapes that inspired him, from magazines or picture books. His drawing style is unique― he uses a chopstic and Chinese ink, listening to his favorite music and lying down on the floor with one of his arms under his head. First he draws a big rough sketch quickly. And then he adds one line to another, following the course of the privious lines. The several overlapping lines and spattered black ink of his pictures give you a strong impression.
