Kiyohiko Azuma’s Urban Sketches of Japan

Art Manga

Kiyohiko Azuma is a manga artist perhaps best known for his series Yotsuba&! about the naïve five-year old Yotsuba who humorously stumbles her way through life.

Stylistically, Yotsuba is always drawn more cartoonishly while her surroundings take on a different, more realistic look.

And the astounding level of detail that can go into some of Azuma’s backgrounds can render them as standalone works of art.

The team at Spoon & Tamago has more incredible pictures of Azuma’s sketches, so click on the link below.
