We all know Amano for his works in the video game industry, mainly for the Final Fantasy franchise. But Amano is a 360 degrees artist having worked in many industries.

The January’s Vogue Italia issue features a work of his on its cover—the artwork is a representation of model Lindsay Wixson-Young.


Also, follow Amano’s Instagram profile, he’s amazing.

Gorgeous cover.

Also, if you guys don't know Lindsey Wixson's face, you may be surprised at how little her features are stylized here.

Wonderful to see! And it's a neat reasoning behind the decision. Curious what there will be in the issue.

Amano also worked on an anime movie in the 80's with the guy who would later direct ghost in the shell, in case you want to see more of his art.

This movie is on drugs

Fun fact: They couldn't get anyone to fund the animation, so they published all the concept art and storyboards as an artbook through Amano's publisher to raise money. Pretty clever way to do things before the age of crowdfunding.
