Having missed my opportunity this weekend to catch character design master, Akemi Takada this weekend, I was ecstatic to see the livestream recorded, and here for all to see.
Those unfamiliar with Takada's name will surely recognize her stylings from many anime adaptations of Rumiko Takahashi's manga creations from Urusei Yatsura, to Maison Ikkoku. Her endearing style has also gone on to adorn other favorites such as Creamy Mami, Kimagure Orange Road, & even Patlabor! Few borders existed for her inimitable, charismatic art style. Also a veteran of several US convention appearances, her demeanor has been among one of the warmest, most charming guests I've ever had the fortune to witness. And now, she shares a full-length art session with us!
Let's watch a master work shall we?
Sorry. It's just opportunities like this that I just go completely mad with admiration.
