For years I have actively searched through the internet for anime art to adore. After creating a large collection of my favorite artists, I decided it could be nice to share.
In America, I feel that much of the anime fandom neglects the artists and their style and pays more attention to the characters -- often paying no respect to the artist/source even if they like it. As an artist myself, this makes me pretty upset. I made this blog hoping to change that around.
You can call me Miq, and enjoy the artists, here at Anime Clay.
I do not know if I will be sharing any artist classier than ikura.
An aspect of Japan that I really like is the street fashion. Surprisingly, you don’t get to see a whole lot of it in anime, at least in comparison to how many cos-play-prone fantasy or sci-fi outfits there are (not that that is bad). But ikura keeps the street fashion of Japan in their art, coupling it nicely with their sleek and graphic style.
