With all the figures I keep pre-ordering it’s rare for me to write about anything non-figure related, I occasionally rant about the odd Anime here and there but generally it’s all about the pvc figure goodness. Today is a little different (not by much!). Inspired by Leonia’s post on the same subject, I went out and tracked down my own copy of Shunya yamashita’s Wildflowers: a collection of illustrations released June 2008.
This book is getting pretty hard to find for a decent price, so I was very happy at getting hold of this copy for what I consider to be a good price. The book is tagged as being artistic with a twist of erotic synonymous with Yamashita’s style of seductive female art.
Each page is filled with tremendous artwork, each showing off Yamashita’s unique style, it is an amazing compilation of the best aspects of Modern Manga style. Readers will find very familiar faces in these pages, some from Girls of Gaming magazine or from various PVC sculpts over the years.
I am very satisfied with my purchase as this book, the character designs all have the trade mark Yamashita style but keep an individuality which stops the art looking too regimented. It is a visual feast and art lovers would do wise to explore more of Yamashita’s works.
Thanks for reading
