It’s been ages since I’ve had an update. I’ve been visiting the old country, alongside some other hubbub (including a very new family member!) so well sorry if shit has been dead. ^^;;

Anyways I’m here to talk about Sana Takeda. An artist I discovered more along the US comic thread, and my how false my assumptions were. Apparently she’s not a dude, and she’s a Japanese citizen (not a Japanese-American). Hardly the kind of person you’d imagine being commissioned to work for the biggest names in American comics.. (i.e. Marvel, Aspen, etc) I guess the industry has far reaches.

But let me talk a bit more about her style. I think it’s accurate to say it’s a style that truly blends the east and west. It can LOOK fitting for an American comic but it also feels true to a more manga esque style. Not only is it something a bit different, but a kind of vision I can connect with. Check out for yourself how some of her images feel westernized, yet others less so.

P.S. She’s brilliant when it comes to painting images that are off angles from the central subject. Therefore, offering a very intimate if not more poignant impression on the viewer.

    Wow, I would've never guessed she's a chick. I like the 2nd pic though, kind of haunting. :<
