On-going since November 2013, A Drawing Life is a series of monthly online interviews with famed manga artist/illustrator/concept artist Katsuya Terada, presented by Japanese publisher PIE Books.
The interviews ( in Japanese only ) 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 numerous sketches and illustrations, all tasty stuff, some of which I have reproduced below :
I wish I had the time to do a full English translation of the interviews ( it’s a fun read ), but I don’t. To read all the interviews, go here.

I also recommend my Katsuya Terada Art Books – The Big List, a comprehensive list of Terada-san’s published art books.20
