Looking on for another fantasy artist I stumbled upon this edition of artwork by Yoshitaka Amano, and loved it.
A fellow artist said he was inspired by Amano's prints, so I tracked down this book and was completely amazed. His prints are beautiful and capture little moments in his imagination that intertwine with other moments. One print feels like it has more than one story behind it. Whenever I hit The Block, I usually pull out this book to flip through.

Amano became famous for doing character designs for japanese games such as the final fantasy series. He has since went on from that to illustration then big time art shows in New York and all over the world. This collection of prints has a good smorgesboard of his works from all over the spectrum of his career.
From the artist who did Neil Gaiman's Sandman: The Dream Hunters. Beautiful prints on thick, textured paper with deep colors. Some erotic, some fantastical, some playful. All amazing.
One of the most beautiful things I've ever laid eyes on.

I think I can die happy now.

I'm afraid that Amano is my favourite Japanese artist ever. End of story.
Large book filled with prints by Amano from all different kinds of projects.
Watercolors to die for.
i love, love this book!
