Harper Collins, Feb 21, 2006 - Comics & Graphic Novels - 128 pages

Following the success of Japanese Comickers, this book profiles twelve Japanese and Korean artists working in anime and manga -- all of whom eagerly discuss their work and share their thoughts on this incredible and increasingly popular genre. Some featured artists use digital tools to create their work, while others work in more traditional media.

Each of the twelve profiles in Japanese Comickers 2 includes a brief biography of the artist, a visual of his or her most representative work, and a pictorial gallery with detailed explanations of their techniques. Also included is information on the materials used by each artist and a glossary of terms unique to manga and anime.

A showcase of the cutting-edge vanguard of anime and manga illustration and a valuable how-to guide for aspiring artists, Japanese Comickers 2 is an essential addition to every fan's library.
