Japanese artist Shinichi Furuya can wield all sorts of magic with pencil and paper.

Furuya is a middle-aged salaryman, but in his free time, as pointed out on Ota News, he draws portraits of famous Japanese female celebrities like Satomi Ishihara, Rino Sashihara, and Suzu Hirose. It’s not surprising that his work has been featured on Japanese television. He is quite talented.
