(Thanks saikusa for moving my previous scans! ^^)

From the artbook, "RESET" by Kunie Kanbara.

There was a beautiful book on the shelf of Kinokuniya and I walked past it every time. It was a real mystery to me: what was inside, that is. The price tag said the words "best seller" on it.

Finally I have this artbook now- I got it from my friend for my birthday which is in a few days' time :)

It was a really beautiful surprise to me: if you look at the details, you will realise how lovely the technique is: coloured pencil, scanned in, and then using a computer all the block colours and outlines are blocked in. All gradients are done with soft pencil. The composition of each page and the sequence of images were also very special.

So because of the special composition, I have left some empty space (not all) so you know where the empty space is located: you can then crank up a blank canvas in portrait and see what it looks like for yourself :)

PS: I haven't forgotten the Ai Yazawa scans... I've just finished scanning them today and they will come soon- probably tomorrow, or the day after.

PPS: It's really hard to choose from this artbook what to submit to Minitokyo. There are a lot of "repeated" images in the sense that they have a few differences and such. I guess I'll slowly submit what I feel people would enjoy :D

    I'm totally loving these submissions XD Her art is incredibly stylish. I only discovered her a few months ago, but she's rapidly becoming one of my favourites. Thanks so much for scanning your artbook for us!

    I'm not sure what else I can say that I have not already said about the other pieces. It's evocative, engaging, and spurs the imagination. All of this happens with such ease, and on account of the simplicity and minimalism of such a work.

    Is it true that the artist is a woman? I didn't know either way, but I just noticed LordWe's comment above...
