The next chapter in the Apple Seed Saga: "Ex Machina",
directed by legend John Woo is visually stunning.
The book, "The Analysis of Ex Machina" is equally stunning.
This concept book is filled with awesome illustrations that
cover character design, mech design, architecture and futuristic
vehicles. Great book.
Studio 4C has done it again. Last year they produced one of my
favorite anime features, "Tekkonkinkreet". The movie was
stylistically innovative and the story was very intriguing in that
crazy, other world, japanese anime way. Now Studio 4C has released
two art books filled with production drawings and sketches. One book
is titled: "Black Side" and the other "White Side". The drawings in
these books are amazing. 4C's attention to detail is unsurpassed.

If you love mech's, this is the book for you. I discovered
Izumo Jyuki's work in a Gundam Side Story. He redesigned the
Gundam mech's in a very utilitarian way that made the series
more believable. Izumo also designed the mech's for Xbox's
"Steel Battalion. Pick it up!
