Superflat

Cal Henderson posted this link on superflat artist Chiho Aoshima this morning. With a little research, I found this excellent slideshow. And this, too. Then, I learned about superflat movement founder Takashi Murakami. And then I discovered this superflat commercial anime video.

For those who haven't clicked any of the links yet:

Not that superflat.
Not that superflat, either.
Not even this superflat, either.
And it ain't this superflat by a longshot.
This is an extreme example of superflat. You'll find a few more in mongonikol's FPP.

The "commercial anime video" link was thoroughly enjoyable. Better than Cats. Would watch again.

Strange. Oddly enough, the Murakami interview led me to the Tokaimura Accident, which I somehow managed to have never heard of.

Nuclear accidents, Louis Vuitton and anime otaku, oh my!

Thank you for leading me to this great artist and also Fantastic Plastic Machine (the song on the Vitton video). A P5 fan here but have overlooked other Shibuya-kei artists. Sweet!

Oh, wow! Thank you for this; I remember when I saw her art in the Union Square subway station. At first I was awestruck by how pretty it was. Then I got mad, 'cause I figured someone was probably using it to advertise something, and I'd just gotten suckered in. Then I realized that it was just a bunch of murals, and I became happy again. The end.

I was wondering who did the awesome music for that video. Now it makes sense. Dude's the bomb.
