Yuichi Yokoyama is an Eisner Award-nominated artist. He was born in 1967 in Miyazaki Prefecture, Japan, and later graduated from the Oil Painting Department of Musashino Art University. Originally, he specialized in fine art paintings, but after 2000, started to release manga, feeling that through it he could "express time." These unique works would go on to be called "neo manga" and receive high acclaim in many fields. His other graphic novels include Color Engineering, Travel, Garden, World Map Room, and Iceland.
