A man from the Japanese City of Osaka has become an internet star thanks to his great painting skills.

The man has a degree in art but started to work in an office because he didn't think that he could make enough money as an artist. But thankfully, he never stopped following his dreams and he draws on his iPad.

With one iPad and a cheap app in it, he can draw and amaze many people. He draws everything from replicas of original masterpieces to portraits. He films everything and then puts it all on YouTube. The videos are very popular and get over 100,000 views every time.

Difficult words: app (computer software), amaze (surprise very much), replica (copy), masterpiece (very good picture).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
