Ken Sugimori Works art book releasing May 27


Pokémon, Quinty, Jerry Boy, and more

Ken Sugimori's original Pokémon designs are what I grew up with, and I truly dig his art style. I'm pleased that he's releasing his first art book ever on May 27th, even though that fact is a little difficult to believe. How is it that the man responsible for the character designs of Pokémon is just now releasing a book collecting his work over the last 25 years? You could have been milking us for all we've got all this time, Sugimori-san, because we would have kept buying your goods over and over.

The Ken Sugimori Works art book isn't just limited to Pokémon though, compiling special illustrations, designs, and comics from work like Quinty (Mendel Palace) and Jerry Boy (Smart Ball) for a good variety to thumb through. It's going to be a fairly massive tome, I'd say, so if you're a Pokémon fan or even curious about Sugimori's work beyond that of what you're familiar with, you might want to get your hands on this volume if it ever receives an English release, or heck -- just import it. It'll definitely be worth your time, especially if you want a bit of nostalgia to roll around in.
