Model kits as the doorway to pulp transcendence. Komatsuzaki is a cult figure in Japan; in his long 50 year career he painted thousands of illustrations for model kit boxes, among other things. Sadly, it is reported that few of his paintings survive, due to a massive fire.

    Wow, Komatsuzaki does gorgeous work. Brings to mind the work of Bruce McCall, (painter for Nat Lamp, New Yorker, and many other magazines) but “Bruce on a serious day”.

  2. Very cool!

  3. Wonderful work, but sad news about the fire!
