Kaba: Otomo Katsuhiro (56K users beware!)

Post by Los Fokos » Thu Sep 30, 2004 9:31 pm

So, I ran into some guys website a few weeks ago. He's an american living in Japan who had taken photos of some of his favorite books. In that collection was this book and it just blew me away. It's a collection of Otomo's illustrations. It took me a while to find a copy. It was published in '89. I eventually found one for about 32 bucks. It contains artwork from his ventures in comics, illustration, animation, & broadcast/commercials.
Sorry 'bout the bad photos.
Enjoy:

They look fantastic! I like Otomo's take on a piece by Escher.

Oh wow. Brilliant!! Please, if you can give us the title (unless it's in Japanese...in which case I'll just be hunting for an Otomo book from 1989)...
