What is TAKUROMAN?

I couldn't forget my childhood dreams, and joined a manga school at the age of 35 years old. While attending manga school, I learned drawing techniques directly from Ms. Masae Takakuwa, the author of the book "Human Body Croquis" that impressed me. The shape that appeared by drawing coincidently is intuitively colored and it becomes an artwork almost as it is. Therefore, the same thing cannot be drawn again.
