Retrospective Scenes from a Sentimental World:
Background Illustrations and Scenes by Up-and-Coming Creators
This third book in the background illustration series takes us on a sentimental journey through the scenes of our most cherished memories
The artwork showcased in this book illustrates sentimental moments with delicate colors and unique angles, looking back at those moments when you were alone with your crush after school, or the path that you took with your childhood best friend, the unforgettably beautiful views from summers long gone, and the rain-splashed window you gazed out from after your first broken heart. In a departure from the first title in the series, Everyday Scenes from a Parallel World, this title focuses on more touching, delicate and emotional scenes, gathering together a collection of cityscapes, countryside, a beach, a classroom after school, and a building rooftop at dawn and dusk, sunrise and sunset. Furthermore, each artist’s strong sense of depth and transparency successfully illustrates the fragility and preciousness of life.
Featuring 23 artists who are quickly gaining popularity on social media in Japan (including 13 creators who have been newly added for this book), we guarantee that this book will touch readers’ heartstrings and will inspire all kinds of artists and comic illustration fans.
