Range Murata’s Shangri-La

Posted By yonghow on April 14th, 2011

Was rummaging through a pile of my art books when I came upon these – promotional cardboard cut-outs of the lead character from the anime series Shangri-La, designed and illustrated by Range Murata. I must have picked them up a long time ago during one of those Anime Conventions in Tokyo.

Murata-san’s illustrations and renderings are extraordinary. ( although subject matter might be controversial sometimes. ) Just looking at these make me want to browse through all his art books again, starting with Prismtone.

Certainly one of my favorites artists.

It may be that some of his themes can be a little controversial indeed, but I’m sure this helps quite a bit selling things around Japan. I should say that’s a “market study”.
