The origin of Eguchi Hisashi’s illustrations was the “cover art of manga!” Impacted by the cover art of Tsubame Kamogawa’s “Macaroni Hōren-sō,” and introduced to illustrators like Yumura Teruhiko, Suzuki Hideto, Nagai Hiroshi, and Hayashi Seiichi through the magazine “Illustration,” launched in 1979, Eguchi Hisashi was experimenting with various styles of illustration, often drawing cover art for manga that had nothing to do with the main story.

He experimented with expressing through tonal differences without using color, drawing solely with lines, creating woodblock print-like pieces with brushes, and using screentone to depict the shadow of glasses. It is also said that Eguchi Hisashi was the first to use color tones in manga.
