Not exactly an art book per se, famed Japanese illustrator/manga/concept artist Katsuya Terada’s ( Monkey King, RakugaKing ) new book A Drawing Life is actually a compilation of online interviews/sketches that the artist did for Japanese publisher PIE books ( see this older post ).
The interviews are pretty in-depth and covers a wide range of topics including Terada-san’s working methods, discussions of his doodles and sketches, his wishlist for an ideal hardware set-up, experiences of his recent time spent in the U.S and much more. Peppered between the lengthy written interviews are plenty of sketches and illustrations, all tasty stuff, and now made available in this tankobon.
A lengthy, insightful interview with Katsuya Terada, and lots of accompanying sketches and illustrations. Recommended.
