Anonymous said: Your work reminds me of One Piece :) Are you inspired by Japanese Manga? If so, what tittles do you recommend?
Thanks! I would say my style is partly influenced by manga (there’s probably some One Piece in there). I grew up reading Dragon Ball and Astro Boy comics, so those images are cemented in my mind. I really like the aesthetics of 60s, 70s, and 80s manga.
As far as recommendations go, I would suggest basically anything by Osamu Tezuka (Astro Boy, Phoenix, Black Jack), the works of Naoki Urasawa (20th Century Boys, Pluto) and Rumiko Takahashi (Urusei Yatsura, Ranma 1/2), Fullmetal Alchemist by Hiromu Arakawa, Shigeru Mizuki’s Kitaro, and Mitsuru Adachi’s Cross Game.
