one of my favourite Japanese (not to classify) illustrators; Hideyike Katsumata http://www.myspace.com/hideyuki_k recently unveiled a new collection of work. One of the things i respect about this guy is his ability to marry subtlety with vast depths of intellectual extremism... don't believe me?... look closely.
As a fan of artistic progression, his 'seasonal' exploits and experimentation please me to a large extent. Clearly an aesthetically driven artist, Hideyuki's approach would translate perfectly into infamously surreal t-shirt designs ... but admitedly... I'd rather he maintained his pre-existing and unbridled exclusivity!
