Outline

Short stories related to the topic of yards, which are so familiar yet inexplicably delightful. Yards are made of things from nature yet are artificial and always connected to people. A variety of stories originating from this idea are portrayed through an analog drawing method and screen tones, creating originality and depth. They leave a resonance with readers who realize that we, too, have some unexpectedly niche thoughts about yards.
