The second I saw "illustration" and "bicycle" I knew that Mohiro Kitoh had to be included, and it seems I was right Smile.

I'll have to go check this out next time I'm in a Toranoana.

In a related story, the art books has already been licensed and dropped by three US publishers all of whom have claimed the work is in "licensing hell". When told that's exactly what they said about Murata's other curated work, Super Color Robot, two out of the three publisher's reps burst into flame and the third turned into a magical girl calling herself Vaporware-Chan and flew off on her magical broom made out of R1 Sailor Moon DVD re-releases.

I see you've never participated in Portland, OR Naked Bike Ride. Granted, all the ladies who participate are of age (unlike our questionable cover gal)... but just be thankful it's not some overweight dude "lettin' it all hang out." Yes, there are some Creatures who participate in the Naked Ride as well as other men.

That aside, I LOVE cycling! I'd definitely love to get my hands on this book to flip through it, maybe even buy it (if it could be shown on one's coffee table without squicking the ordinary folks).

Riding a bike with that much metal and wheels that small would probably be hard work.

She has to stay cool somehow. Very Happy

Say what you will of the word's suitability as a pen-name, but it fits the butternut squash quite comfortably.

I'll be frank, I've never heard of a butternut squash before. So that's definitely news to me man. Laughing

It does? How much of his work have you seen? You should see some of the test stuff he did for Mardock Scramble... Amazing but some people really hate it... :shrug:

With such a sense of style, I am willing to forgive being mooned.
