(if you’re not already familiar with them already)
I’m purposefully not including a description of any of these blogs because I want you to just check them out for yourself.
I passed on this photo on to a friend of mine who responded by telling me that some people think that Kazuo Umezu looks like the singer of Laughin’ Nose (pictured below).
Sure, the resemblance is there, but who gives a shit about how similar they look? The only thing that matters is that when you put UMEZZ and Laughin’ Nose side by side, it’s that much easier to see how easily UMEZZ wipes the floor with these jags. If you don’t believe me, watch these two piles of shit.

I don’t know what to say about Suehiro Maruo that the art he’s created cannot. The only thing that I can come up with is that it’s obvious that he’s completely out of his mind in the best way possible. I hate the fact that I’ve read almost none of his work, but then again, almost none of it is available in English. Sure there were a few books published here and there in the U.S., but there’s nothing left that’s widely available.
I’ve put together a brief overview of what’s available online in hopes that more than a few people will get more than a little interested in his work. Links to articles and et cetera are below. As always, double click on the larger images to blow them up.
