This guy is incredibly talented in everything he puts his hands to. Great art featuring mashups of popular culture characters and even his own book series. Couldn't say enough great things about him and his work!

This guy is amazing. He makes incredibly lifelike goldfish paintings in layers of acrylic resin. If you haven't seen his work yet, prepare to be amazed. Open this in Google Chrome as it will need to translate the Japanese.
