Around the year 2000, you can see drawings that appear to be draft sketches for Motehayashi and other works.
He graduated from Musashino Art University in 1990 with a degree in oil painting. He used to make fine art, but since 2000 he prefers cartoons as his medium of expression because he can "paint time". Yokoyama's manga, characterized by dashing lines and onomatopoeia, the uninterrupted flow of time and unique characters, is called "neo-manga", and is "New Doboku", "Travel", "NIWA", " Baby Boom”, “World Map Room”, and many other books have been translated and published in countries such as Japan, France, the United States, Italy, Spain, and Russia, and have gained popularity. In addition, high-quality works such as "BABY BOOM FINAL", which reproduces Yokoyama's vividly colored original paintings with plenty of high-concentration fluorescent colors, have been published.
