Courtesy of pixiv, Media Do International, Inc., and Clover Press, AIPT can exclusively reveal art for two Kickstarters currently fully backed, but still ongoing called Artists in Taiwan and Artists in Korea. These deluxe books showcase over 150 artists—representing just a small fraction of the talented artists actively engaged on pixiv. You can back both projects here.
“Pixiv is proud to partner with Clover Press and Media Do International to introduce these artists to the English reading audience, and to deliver their art beyond the boundaries of region and language. We hope everyone can find their own inspiration through these books, and be encouraged to make their own creations and post them to pixiv,” said pixiv senior VP of Creator’s Platform Department Takahiko Kato.
Artists in Taiwan features 83 incredible artists in Taiwan, with a cover by VOFAN, an illustrator with an impressive mastery of the use of intense light and shadow.
Artists in Korea features 78 fantastic artists in Korea, with a cover by Tiv, an illustrator well known for poetic and transparent expression and capturing emotional moments, especially of women. Between both volumes, the books collect the amazing work of Say HANa, I READING, LOIZA, B.c.N.y., modare, Anmi, zipcy, Gearous, DSmile, Canking, and many more.
