Pictures of Magakas Part 2
Last edited by Negative Syndicate; December 05, 2009 at 10:06 AM.
To celebrate the recent opening of Books Kinokuniya's new Bryant Park store in New York City, renown manga artist Takehiko Inoue painted a mural featuring characters from his award-winning seinen manga series, Vagabond. Started and completed over a November weekend, the mural is the highlight of Books Kinokuniya's second floor devoted to manga, anime DVDs, CDs, art books and collectibles.
For more picture of Inoue and this event go here.
As long as the pics are relatively small, don't worry about thumbnails. Keep posting pics.
ive s33n that wall veryyyyy cooooool.
except its a horrible invasion of privacy and completly destroys why half of them have pen names.
Sorry if this is considered against the rules for reviving an old thread like this, but I just can't resist to comment on this. Thank you everyone for the awesome pictures of some of the best people that write and draw the thing we all love:manga.
Btw any more pictures?
@Benjamin: Don't worry, reviving threads is not breaking the rules. It helps create more discussion just in case someone may not have come across it the first time. As for me, I can now move it to the Authors & Artist section where it's more appropriate.
Mangaka are timid
creaturespeople so not a lot of photos could be found easily. Do you have a specific mangaka in mind?
Think of these as column from L to R.

If this is a thread about Mangaka pictures (never knew we had this ), then this picture MUST be posted! It's so sweet :3
That's Usuta Kyousuke (Pyuu to Fuku Jaguar) and Sakaki Kenji (Enigma)!! Yes they are married
Thank Akiyama and his stalking skills, he was the one who posted this in the Jump TOC thread when it first happened ^^
That's an adorable photo! As I said in the WSJ thread, I wish the best for the married couple.
Small font for semi-OT rambling: Sakaki-sensei used to be an assistant for Amano Akira (of Katekyo Hitman Reborn). Amano-sensei and Usuta-sensei are good friends, and they/their characters made a cameo appearance in their respective tankobons. I'm positive that the newlywed couple met through Amano while Sakaki was still working as an assistant. I find that adorable! :3
Oh well, here he is the legendary seinen writer, Naoki Urasawa, I wonder what he has planned after Billy Bat...
Kaitani Shinobu, he has done some public events for his works.
