“Zenbu” ( From the Kanji characters “全部”, meaning “everything” ) is the most comprehensive collection of art work by Japanese illustrator Katsuya Terada, who also gave us the highly acclaimed “Monkey King“, “Rakuda Ga Warau“, and “VIVA Il CICLISMO“.
Housed in this book is an expansive and exhaustive collection of Terada’s portfolio that runs the gamut from character designs for games, commissioned art pieces, manga art work, doodles and what not.
(above) Bondage and female nudity are recurring themes in Terada’s work. ( The ones you see here are relatively tame; I’ve left out some of the more explicit pieces appearing in the book. )
(above) A collection of sexy and exuberantly costumed females from Terada’s “Covergirls” series. A giant sized art book of the same name contains the complete collection, but has since gone out of print. Folks who are keen to get it might be able to find it one Amazon Marketplace.
Terada is equally at home with his B&W art pieces. In fact, Rakugaking, a whopper of an art book is entirely dedicated to his sketches. Review for the book is coming soon. (above) An unmistakable tribute to the legendary French comic artist/illustrator/concept artist Moebius.
(above) Zenbu comes with a protective cardboard slip case to keep your copy in good condition.
