The below section needs to be overhauled to show verification. Unless these are the opinions of a professional art critic, Gosho's art evolution needs to be backed up by a series of images demonstrating the differences. Also the text was copied verbatim from the DCwikia site. Although not required because of the licensing arrangements for wikis, it would be preferable not to clone their stuff on principle.

Gosho Aoyama was showed promising talent in the field of arts when his painting of "Yukiai War" was elected by the judges as the winner and it was then displayed at the Tottori Daimaru Department Store as a result of winning the competetion. At that time, Gosho was only a first grader.

Gosho describes himself and his friends as the Detective Boys characters of his manga Detective Conan back in his youth. He thinks of himself as the Mistushiko type of the group. Gosho had still been drawing Nyarome, a character originally invented by Akatsuko Fujio, one of the creaters of the popular manga, Doraemon. The name of the first manga which Gosho bought was "Ore wa Teppei" (I am Teppei) created by Tetsuya Chiba. He really liked it and the manga inspired him to learn Kendo. He also joined the Kendo Club.

Gosho's parents were strict on the matter and told him that "No good can ever come out of reading manga. Gosho had to read manga secretly during his Junior High years, which almost made him give up his dream to be a Mangaka and enroll in the Japan University College of Art to become an art teacher instead. At college, Gosho joined the Manga Studies Club where he met his alumnus Yutaka Abe, a mangaka. The door to drawing manga opened when Yutaka asked Gosho if he wanted to draw manga for real.

In 1986, Gosho Aoyoama participated in a comic contest for freshmen students and won it, which was a base for him becoming a manga artist and an author, as well as an important turning point in his life.
