Kaiju anatomical drawings

Kaiju anatomical drawings

For those curious about the inner workings of kaiju beasties like Gamera (top) and Guiron…

The anatomical features of Gamera and his foes are detailed in a set of illustrations found in one volume of the Kaijū-Kaijin Daizenshū movie monster book series published by Keibunsha in 1972.

    I have no idea why, but I loved Gamera as a child. Possibly due to his “disk of fire” flight mode, which was sort of animated IIRC.

    And since monsters love children, I had to return the favor.

    That’s my story and I’m stickin to it.

    This seems an apropos time to point to one in a series of posters I made based on some illustrations I did for CRAFT magazine. http://www.etsy.com/listing/65743772/craft-poster-monster, http://www.flickr.com/photos/narwhalbot/5376393464/in/photostream/ It’s a depiction of Kaiju monster Sky Deviler from the live monster wrestling league Kaiju Big Battel.
