Nice Art of Whiplash from 赤坂嘉紀 Akasaka-san (www.pixiv.net/member.php?id=36…. Akasaka worked on the "Blue Gender" Manga back in the early 2000's (been that long already?) and currently is working for Me at Angry Viking Press!
after Blue Gender not much, just afew comics of his own, but before it apparently he created the Ninja girl "Rachel" for Martial Champion www.youtube.com/watch?v=C5zRfs… and did some character art for the TMNT Konami tournament fighter games.
Most of his original books you can see previews here where he expanded the story of Rachel. Since he created her for Konami he doesn't officially own her unfortunately so he can only work on her in dojinshi books. :/ www.doujinshi.org/browse/circl…
ALso look for the Sengoku Valkyrie and Irina the cold warrior images he did for me as well.
yes for many years. I even translated 2 of his CD's for him. if you check his page some of my "fan art" is still up there (he never took it down) including my late friend Andy (whom died of cancer in 08) and my other friend Drake.
