Just now on TV I caught a fascinating profile of illustrator/designer/art director Bunpei Yorifuji. He’s done tons of book covers, but his most recognizable work for readers of this site would probably be the infamous JT “smoking etiquette” campaign. He has his offices in Ginza, and he does all his work on a ping-pong table. I’ve fallen in love with the books he’s produced, like the one about shit (you have to see how he illustrates the workings of the human body — brilliant), and a new one, out next month, about death. Do take the time to check out his website, which is a joy to browse, with funny little illustrations throughout (it’s a shame the “works” section is still under construction though).
