There’s a reason Hi-Fructose keeps tabs on Tokyo artist Shohei (aka Hakuchi) Otomo(featured in Hi-Fructose Vol. 20). The only son of great manga artist Katsuhiro Otomo, the acclaimed writer and director of the anime cult classic Akira, Hakuchi carries on his father’s legacy with his own graphic illustrations that combine Japanese iconography with a dark, retro-punk edge and a healthy dose of sardonic humor. Read more on Hi-Fructose.
I love Hakuchi’s work.
Now giving serious consideration to joining ArtSnacks. Looks like a wonderful idea.
I finally took some time out from other projects to experiment with my art snacks for this month (September) artsnacksblog. I can say without hesitation that I absolutely love the Windsor & Newton watercolor marker. I’ll be buying more of those for sure. I also love the Zig Mangaka Cartoonist marker. Absolutely amazing and make inking fun, versatile, and easy. I’m in love. Inking is where I belong, and I loved combining both the watercolor marker and Zig Mangaka pen. I’ve used the Kimberly pencils before and those are a trusted, affordable pencil. The KUM correc-stick gives you more control over erasing and/or using subtractive techniques in your illustrations. I can see the clear print paper set is extremely versatile and I always love vellum paper but this is a cut above. I love my art snacks. Well worth the subscription.
ArtSnacks is like a magazine subscription but instead of a magazine you get 4 or 5 different art products to try out.

Brain Pickings: John Vernon Lord’s Whimsical Illustrations for James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake.
Brandon Stanton moved to New York in 2010. As an amateur photographer, he was fascinated by the crowds of characters throughout the city. He began to take street portraits of the people he met and share them in an album on his timeline named, Humans of New York.
As his photos started to gain a following, he created a Facebook Page that started a movement. There are “Humans of …” Facebook Pages for nearly every major city in the world, while the HONY photographer himself is something of a celebrity on the streets of New York.
Brandon’s Facebook community of more than 2.3 million people is more than just an audience. Together, they have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for charity and have propelled Brandon to become a New York Times bestselling author after he published a book of his work in 2013.
