After studying oil painting at an art university, Yokoyama began to draw manga as a medium that best suited his form of expression. To date, he has produced many manga pieces including, “New Engineering”, “Travel”, “NIWA”, “Outdoor”, and “Baby Boom”, which has gained high acclaim both in and out of Japan. Yuichi Yokoyama’s manga, which he describes as “drawing time”, is a clear departure from common story form manga. Dialog is sparse and onomatopoeias such as “do do do do” and “wa-” are boldly used. In an atmosphere that is uncanny but arrtactive, cool characters freely move around with a sense of speed. This unique expression that Yokohama himself describes as “neo-manga” has easily oversome the limits of a two dimensional media to superbly draw “time” and “space”. His work brings fresh surprises and excitement to the viewer and has continued to have great impact extending beyound the genre.

This image was taken from Yokoyama’s manga titled “Travel”. In this story, the three men, who are depicted in this piece, travel by train to their destination. The usual comic book onomatopoeias do not appear in this manga, but there is a sense of speed throughout the entire story. The book was printed in black and white, but the artist chose silver for this silkscreen reincarnation. The story seems to tell a tale of travels into the future, and the color aptly portrays that atmosphere.
