Some drawings of Yasuhiro Nakura, director of Space Dandy episode 21.
He was character-designer and animation director on Metropolis and Memol.
He also worked a lot on Tenshi No Tamago, Moomins, and was animator on Laputa. (note : his artbook is gorgeous)

FLCL (フリクリ) image board art by Hiroyuki Imaishi (今石洋之) circa 2000 in his doujinshi Hiroyuki Imaishi Key Animation Collection Vol. 12

The Newtype (09/2014) feature for Gundam Reconguista in G (ガンダム Gのレコンギスタ) included a long interview with Gundam creator Yoshiyuki Tomino (富野由悠季), illustrations from character designer Kenichi Yoshida (吉田健一) and well-wishes from a veritable who’s who list of industry insiders.

Been a fan of Kenichi Yoshida since the King Gainer days. I even wrote a fan email to him in Japanese. I wonder if he read it.

Oh yeah, it’s so hard to explain our passion for animators.
