Katsuhiro Otomo's Son Draws
I had no idea that Katsuhiro Otomo (Akira, Steamboy, Memories) had a son, so finding out about him, let alone seeing how talented he was has been nothing short of a mind blowing revelation. Shohei definitely inherited some of his fathers style and talent, and enjoys working freehand with check this..Ballpoint pens on illustration board.
These 3 timelapses of Shohei drawing were created for Carhartt, an international clothing brand. Watching this man hatch in his drawings with such confidence is nothing short of maddening. It looks like the Otomo legacy will carry on for generations to come.
