Daijiro Morohoshi Art Book

Japanese Publication


An art book on the work of Daijiro Morohoshi, from 1970-2012 / 128-page book, 8.25 x 11.25, text in Japanese / 140 paintings and drawings, most in color.

From wikipedia: "Because Morohoshi's style of painting was too unique, his assistants said that they didn't know how to assist him, or Osamu Tezuka said that he could not imitate Morohoshi's painting. Morohoshi's Mud Men triggered Haruomi Hosono of Yellow Magic Orchestra, and Hosono wrote 'The Madmen' for the album Service. Hosono said that his production company misspelled 'Mudmen' with 'Madmen'. Hayao Miyazaki told that he was strongly influenced by Morohoshi in various media. When Kentaro Takekuma interviewed Miyazaki, he said that he actually wanted Morohoshi to draw Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind."
