The exhibition ‘Osamu Tezuka’s beautiful boys and girls ~elegance~’ will collaborate with the manga artist Mine Yoshizaki on an original illustration of Kemono Friends and Phoenix.
Mine Yoshizaki, who draws many different forms of animals in his work Kemono Friends, will draw an illustration with Osamu Tezuka’s Phoenix (Hi no Tori) as the theme. We can already see the shadow of that phoenix in the above teaser!
In Kemono Friends, Mine Yoshizaki has created animals that have turned into beautiful girls. Characters like the Japanese Crested Ibis and the Shoebill are already very popular among the fans. We wonder how the popular character, who Osamu Tezuka considers his life’s work, will be designed!
