The works of the illustrator, animator and manga artist, Senbon Umishima, including the artist’s anime characters, landscapes, and selections from Senbon’s own original manga stories. Umishima also worked as animation director for She & Her Cat, the first animated work by the award-winning animator Makoto Shinkai, and contributed to The Heroic Legend of Arslan and other anime series. Umishima’s drawings are known for the way they illustrate body movement beautifully, while also expressing a sense of sentiment —a unique style that has inspired the artist’s more than a hundred thousand followers on Twitter.

This title is sure to be equally inspiring to Umishima fans and those who are new to Senbon’s distinctive illustrated works. Here are collected sweet drawings and cityscapes that will remind you of the Miyazaki films and their heroines. But also here are sexy manga heroines, some quite typical and feisty, others closer to Yoshitaka Amano and Otomo. But there's more: his skill at movement is shown with pages of beautiful girls with swirling hair, and dancing figures. Here we have a real talent, who can work in several different genres and yet retain that signature quality of color and motion that makes this work unique.

Quality softcover with flaps, gold embossed cover titles. Preface by the artist, along with very minimal notes is in Japanese and English. The few manga examples are in Japanese. Printed in Japan.
