Yonabaru-choi, Okinawa Prefecture:

The Deaf-born woman named Uehara Mami, 51, who lives in Okinawa, Japan's southern island, liked drawing a picture when she was young and learned an illustration in earnest at a design college.

She published a book about her life with a hearing dog as well as other three comic books so far. She drew an illustration of a picture-card show about a folk tale in her area which is appreciated by kindergarten children and others.

Uehara is also working on e-book of the other cartoon series while challenges to draw a cartoon in order to stop euthanization of dogs and cats at present.
