  • These remind me of Gustav Klimt

    • Alex

      did you know Amano was inspired by Gustav Klimt… that is why is are is similar.

  • Eli

    Yeah, reminders of a lot of things, yet totally original. The last one is stunning…

  • I love how ethereal his artwork can be.

  • One of my personal favourites, Amano proves that video game concept art is not just doodles (as one of my drawing instructors at my previous university insisted).

  • Shea Kennedy

    I loved his work since the first day I layed eyes on it when I purchased FF. Since then he’s been my #1 favorite artist of all time. I’m so proud that he’s been posted here. His art style is known worldwide bringing us all back to our days of Nintendo and Final Fantasy.

  • Steve

    The awesome thing is that Amano directed a film…with his trademark style. It’s so gorgeous to look at:

“15/20” by Photographer Neta Dror

 

In 2011, Tel Aviv-based photographer Neta Dror photographed 6 Israeli teens, returning 5 years later to photograph them each again. Now in their 20s, Dror notes that the biggest change isn’t physical but emotional:

“It was incredible to see how differently they presented themselves to me and to the camera: all grew more confident and were less willing to expose themselves. It was clear they were now more aware of who they are and what part of themselves they wanted to show.”

“Copy Kitty” by Illustrator Kyung Me

Illustrator Kyung Me explores the various ways we construct false identities in romantic relationships with a series of drawings surrounding a character named Copy Kitty. Going to great lengths to be accepted and adored, Copy Kitty gradually descends into a vortex of fantasy and paranoia. Check out more images from Me’s elaborate narrative series below.
