Message by Michinori Naro

I have been spending a lot of time at home, as many of you do. In the midst of this, I came up with the idea of "copying" what I was going to draw. I named it "Mosher". These record jackets are the first group. "Huh? Look closely. You have a face like this, don't you? The Western music I started listening to when I was in junior high school is just like my classmates from that time that I met again after graduation. It's as if the speakers are talking to me as if they can see through me now. It's a little strange. Some of them don't look like me at all. Please enjoy.
