(above & below) Some glimpses into the workspace of Isayama Hajime, the creator of Attack On Titans. It’s always inspiring to look at the workspace of these accomplished artists – check out Otomo Katsuhiro’s (Akira) and Inoue Takehiko’s (Vagabond).

Hello,

Is has nothing to do with this review; it is merely a question: Do you have any clue on what this Masaaki Yuasa book is about?

DISTRAKT – Haha…agreed. :]

Kamikaze – From the book description on Amazon it’s a collection of image boards and concept art from a few of his works. It’s a thin book, only 40 pages, but hopefully I can do a review in the near future.

Hafiz – Would love to attend the exhibition as well. T_T

Crossover between Avengers and Titans. Never see that coming.
