man gataro: even more master strokes

If there’s one thing the past few years of modest visitor counts has proven, people are starved for Man Gataro. The relatively enigmatic Japanese comicker was first featured on this very blog back in 2009, and it looks like people still search for any kind of fleeting glimpse of his work to this day.

Thus, I bring you even more Man Gataro!

The following is a quick selection from the pages of Chinyuki, which is the author’s own twisted take on the classic Journey to the West story. As was the case with the previous scan, it doesn’t really take much knowledge of the language to appreciate this sequence at its most primal level. Sure, it helps, but I think these images mostly speak for themselves…

Consider this a DIY guide. All you need to pull off the tattoo below is a few hundred dollars, a beer gut, and some medium to large breasts.

wanpaku graffiti

While walking around Dublin the other day we ended up stumbling into a backstreet (boys) that opened up to reveal a lot absolutely loaded with graffiti. Every wall had an intricate design on it—some more interesting than others, of course, but there was more than enough cool art to warrant busting out the camera.

enemy mine

Everyone knows the best thing about instruction manuals and guides are the rogues galleries and bestiaries therein. That’s why, to benefit both myself and my readers, I’ve taken all the enemy pages from the glorious Official Nintendo Player’s Guide and put them in one handy place.
