1. Manga Mondays ~ Ippus

    Fantasy style manga illustrator Ippus has some nifty pin-up illustrations on her Deviant Art page. The digital colours are applied to good effect, and she pays a lot of attention to the clothing and accessories of her characters. See more here.

  2. Manga Mondays ~ KawaiiHannah

    KawaiiHannah is an Australia based manga artist. She creates some very cute illustrations full of beautiful, vibrant colours. She is also a brilliant pixel artist, so there’s a very generous-sized gallery of animated gifs to browse through, if you like that sort of thing.

  3. Manga Mondays ~ Inio Asano

    Inio Asano is probably best known for her highly acclaimed manga ‘Solanin’, which was turned into a feature film starring actress Aoi Miyazaki in 2010. Asano’s work ranges from realism to psycho-horror, and is very character driven. Of course we are all about illustration here on The Lounge, but I guess I can’t write about Asano without mentioning she is transgender, as it is such an interesting fact about the artist herself. You can visit her page on Anime News Network to find out a little more.
