Manga Artist and Illustrator | Hisashi Eguchi

Japanese art and design from my childhood is a major inspiration of mine. In this series, I will share the creators that have shaped my idea of great art and design.

@eguchiworks is a Manga Artist and Illustrator who's been creating stunning art work since the 70s.

Stop!! Hibari-kun! is a manga series which was published in the weekly Shonen Jump Magazine written by Eguchi. The romantic comedy manga features a cross-dressing boy as the main character.

His line work is so beautifully calculated without being clinical, it’s something I aspire to achieve so I really admire his style. I also love his use of colour - there is something nostalgic about his palette and even his recent work has the ability to take me right back to lovely memories of being a kid in Japan in the 80s and 90s 😌💙
