I just met an art hero of mine, Mamoru Yamamoto, while attending Unknown Asia in Osaka. He's an amazingly cool guy with a brilliant sense of style. And I did, indeed, leave with one of his amazingly illustrated giclee prints!
Mamoru Yamamoto is such a brilliant illustrator! He recently sent me the greatest little package of his awesomely quirky and beautifully textured work. I was thrilled, well, beyond thrilled! I hope I get the chance to meet him while living here.
