“Works” is a collection of illustration pieces by popular Japanese illustrator Eguchi Hisashi, from the period of 1995 to 2008. I previously highlighted his work in the book review for Illustration magazine No.197.
The artist’s style is easily recognizable – very clean, simple line-work filled with flat, bold colors, at times resembling the work of Pop artist Roy Lichenstein, or even some of Moebius’s work.

(above leflt) The artist possess a spectacular color sense, a keen eye for attractive poses and have a knack for capturing the “performances” of the drawn characters.
I picked up this book not just because I found the artist’s work charming, but also because there’s more than a thing or two about illustration/posing/composition one can learn in here. Recommended.
