My second current obsession from Japan is the work of artist Mou Hitotsu no Kenkyujo. I've been developing a lot of digital animations lately and his beautifully detailed flip books, complete with enhanced print features such as die cuts that reveal secret chambers, are providing a mega dose of inspiration. The books are becoming coveted collector items. I recently purchased "God of Bug Eater (Vol.8)" and the pages are already curling from overuse.
