Through multiple and eclectic themes, Toru Terada reveals a very personal universe, sometimes imbued with sweetness and tenderness, sometimes completely crazy.
Pencil, watercolor, pigmented ink, acrylic, marker… Although he varies the techniques used, his drawings are mostly in direct color.
Through his choice of drawings, the author shows us to what extent drawing is for him a passion that goes beyond the simple framework of work. According to him, it is the drawing that imposes itself on him and guides him, and not the other way around.
Covers of novels, illustrations for posters or magazines, personal works, dedications... You will discover in this collection the diversity of the works and the artistic richness of this author whose success has been exported far beyond Japan.
With the Sketchbooks collection, Comix Buro invites you to leaf through the notebooks of the best artists in the world of comics and illustration. You will find strange creatures, live models captured on paper, sketches brought back from faraway lands, spaceships on their launch pads, storyboards and much more.
