Yoshitaka Amano

Although not part of Anne Ferrero’s Toco Toco series, this wonderful short documentary on Yoshitaka Amano that she helped produce for Mana Books is very much Toco Toco-like, and a great look at the man and what inspires him.

The Tokyoiter Shop

The fantastic Tokyoiter project — creating cover images for an imaginary Tokyo-based New Yorker-like magazine — has now opened a shop, with prints on offer. The runs are limited though, so jump on covers you’d really like to get and frame as soon as you can, but they do promise to introduce new runs with a new selection of covers in the future.


Atomic Blonde

This movie is so ridiculously my jam that it’s, well, ridiculous. I already had high hopes for it after hearing good stuff when it was released in theaters and loving the trailer, and my expectations were surpassed. I got all the brilliant action I was expecting — including that truly brilliant chaotic/messy fight scene in the hallway — but even more than that, I loved the way it was shot, especially the heavy use of colored lighting. There are also some really interesting takes on presenting something — on top of the fights, I loved the car chase sequence that is mostly shot from the interior of the car. Oh, and did I mention the killer late 80s soundtrack? La-la-loved it.
