Viz Media is celebrating its 30th anniversary, so congrats to Viz! To mark the occasion, famed manga artists sent signed drawings to the company. One of them in particular, however, stands out in the cool drawing department.
It’s cool, but yeah, standard stuff.
Ditto for Akira Toriyama.
And for Masashi Kishimoto.
But check out Tite Kubo’s Bleach drawing.
So good. At the top, it reads “Viz,” and below that, he’s written “30" (三十) in Japanese. Inside that, he drew Bleach’s Ichigo Kurosaki. No signature is necessary for a drawing this striking.
You can see more drawings on Robert’s Twitter.
