Satoshi Kon
I've been looking for something original of Satoshi Kon since I started collecting! I really like his works especially Paranoia Agent and Godfathers. I'm hard pressed to find anything of Satoshi Kon that I did not like. :) I'm SO HAPPY to finally have something of his! This is a nice sketch of Mima from Perfect Blue on the movie oversized pamphlet. I actually liked Perfect Blue but just haven't found the right cels yet... Either way the point is I now have something of Satoshi Kon! Yay! You know he's a little odd because he's actually one of those people who likes to keep artwork to himself. I've heard that a ton of cels and backgrounds are with him and isn't being released. LOL. As if keeping with that "tradition", the original seller who had sold this sketch along with some backgrounds the movie and I tried to win it the first time around. Alas! The seller blocked deputy bidders so I about lost my mind when I lost it! But after almost a year the sketch appeared by itself on YJ (I am guessing the original buyer was only interested in the backgrounds) so now it is mine! If you were wondering why the heck backgrounds... Well Satoshi Kon is well-known to have started in backgrounds, specifically Patlabor before becoming a director. Up to now, he still is very meticulous about background detail so there you go. I HAVE SATOSHI KON! YAY!
