Tiger Tateishi

Last year, this big omnibus was published in Japan: Tiger Tateishi Super Multi Dimension, probably prompted by his death in 1998 (and the fact that 2010 was the year of the tiger?).

It’s a great book, spanning his work in comics. It’s also a big book, difficult to scan, but I’ll try and post images from other works than the little metaphysical monks, like his 2-bit, pixel-comics and his Fujio Akatsuka-inspired stuff.

He was also a painter, and you can find auctions online, but I’ve never seen his oil paintings in person. I’m really glad people seem to like this, as he’s one of the most fascinating artists I know.

And here is the man and a short bio from 1972.

This is a reply to Jesse about Tiger Tateishi. This Tumblr theme I’m using is a bit restrictive (or I don’t know how to use it…), so I have to do it in several parts, sorry. 

Here’s how I’ve heard of him: I went to an Ettore Sottsass Jr. exhibition once, and noticed that my favorite drawings were signed “Tiger Pinxit”, “Tiger painted it” in latin. (I’ll scan some of them later.) Looking into it, I discovered Tateishi and this book, from a 1972 Swiss exhibition.
