Illustrator Research 45:Taiyo Matsumoto
Matsumoto is a comic book artist born in Japan in 1967. Some of his comics include Blac and White which was adapted to Tekkonkinkreet, as well as Ping Pong, and Blue Spring. Matsumoto's visual style reflects both Japanese and European styles (seen in his color pallettes). He is well known for his surrealist proclivities as well as a sort of shaky line quality that tends to give his characters and scenes a sort of unsettling under current of chaos.
