I voiced "Wow!" when I saw Yoshitaka Kobayashi's photography on Facebook. A young woman was looking up the first star at Shichirigahama beach against the gorgeous evening sky that was gradually changing colors from vivid orange to clear blue to indigo. He captured the story,  temperature, wind, sound of waves and cars, the pulse of the lighthouse--watching his photo made me feel as if I was there. He was very kind to let me "rebuild the story" as an illustration. I appreciate Yoshitaka--undoubtedly his photography is the big inspiration of this illustration.
