[Autobiography] Why draw pictures – anime

 (c)Fuzuki Arai


I started painting when I was 3 years old, I liked drawing anime illustrations.


When I went to an elementary school I drew pictures on the paper and my friend said when they saw them :

"Wow, your paintings are nice. Could you draw something for me?"

"Ok, sure", I said.
He was pleased by the picture.


Other friends asked me to draw something for them as well, almost every pupil in my class wanted me to draw something for them.

"You are very talented" They said, but I was a very shy boy.
"Can you stop saying these things?"
One of my friends who was very tall and fat said:

"You're not talented" I got disappointed and cried.

Next day I felt lonely.
