One of my influences is the mangaka Hirohiko Araki. He started drawing manga in 1980 and still works to this day. His most well-known manga, and one of my favorites, is JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure, which started in 1986 and is still currently ongoing. He’s had an exhibition in the Louvre as well as collaborating with Gucci. It’s really interesting to have read that from beginning to present and seeing an artist’s progression over 30 years.
I enjoy many aspects of his work. In terms of art I like his linework, designs and paneling. His colored pieces usually feature non-local colors, making them very interesting to look at.
