A collection of oddities from the Same Hat community!
I agree, Jun Hayami’s work upsets me and I find him pretty terrifying. If I met someone and they name-checked Hayami as their, like, legit favorite artist, I would back away quickly and run.
Though I LOVE Furuya and enjoyed Lychee, Like a Velvet Glove Cast in Iron is one of my alltime favorites, so I have to go with Clowes on this one.
Hino, HANDS DOWN.
On this list, I’ve met him, Kazuo Umezu, and Junko Mizuno in person — and have seen videos of Ito, Maruo, and Kago. Hino was wearing a straight up kenpo yukata outfit and clearly is a crazy badass even in his older age. I’m 100% most terrified of him <3
