I discover new artists on Japanese twitter and instagram. I really like some of the ones that draw in a retro-80s anime style.

This artist caught my attention with a drawing of a schoolgirl wearing Kaneda's jacket and riding his bike. Well, AKIRA is kinda my thing, so once I saw that, there was no going back.

The artist's name is Cotoh Tsumi.

I'd say the only real problem with her stuff is that she's a bit repetitive and seems to suffer from "same-face-itis."

Here's a series of portraits of five real like Japanese idols, but there's no way I could tell they're not supposed to be the same person. I still really like them, though.

She seems good at drawing technical stuff, too, but hey....maybe she traces it. Lots of professional artists trace stuff.

I have tons more that I've saved from her twitter and insta, but I'll leave at this one...it's just awesome:
