Shohei 57577 is an art book by illustrator Shohei Otomo, the son of Akira creator Katsuhiro Otomo. Using ballpoint pens as his primary tool, Shohei creates painstakingly detailed illustrations, with his subject matter often focusing on motifs of anti-establishment and satire of Japanese cultural icons.
Shohei’s work was also mentioned briefly in my book review for the Sousakuzine illustration magazine.
It must be hard walking in the shadows of so famous a father, but Shohei-san has certainly etched out a personal style of his own. Creating such detailed artwork must require quite a bit of time and effort; the volume runs fairly light at only 50 pages.
