shichigoro-shingo, an emerging young artist based in Tokyo, has already been gaining a reputation worldwide for his illustration work.

In 2015, he attracted attention for eye-catching contributions to a TV commercial for Tokyo Mode Gakuen, a design school in Japan, and also held a solo exhibition in Russia. Other recent work includes cover art for CLARKESWORLD MAGAZINE (nominated for the Chesley Award 2016 for Best Cover Illustration) and a brand new Sci-Fi short story collection by Caroline M. Yoachim (Fairwood Press) in the U.S. He has also collaborated with Australian apparel company Black Milk Clothing.

Best of Bishonen is the most up-to-date art collection of bishonen, the beautiful boys featured in comics and video games that are popular among teenage Fujoshi female fans. These Fujoshi girls and their love of Yaoi (Boys Love/BL) comics and games have created a big boom in Japan, a boom that cannot be ignored by any business targeting young female comic fans.

The art works showcased in this collection are by 79 popular comic artists and illustrators, with bilingual profiles included for each. Some of the works are actually sought-after illustrations from the popular online game Touken Ranbu and Vocaloid™ PV, and five of the artists included in this collection have created new and original works exclusively for this project.
