Nicolas Nemiri was born 1975 in Mulhouse, France. He studied at the Ecole Européenne Supérieure de l’Image in Angoulême. After graduating and moving to Japan, at the age of 20 he was making money by doing odd jobs, including illustrating for Japanese fashion magazines.
Blade of the Immortal creator/writer/illustrator Hiroaki Samura’s atmospheric drawing style is superb. His work oozes with skill, I love the fact he opts to use pencil for his comics opposed to the usual clean inked line. If you haven’t already, it’s never too late to get on the Blade of the Immortal band wagon.
