Illustrated & written by Ken Taya aka Enfu
Pages overflow with offbeat characters and equally offbeat wisdom from the mind of prolific digital artist Enfu.
Enfu follows his bright and poppy debut, Cute Grit (Chin Music Press, 2014), with Enfu Inks, an all black-and-white extravaganza of bizarre characters and bilingual wisdom. This frenetically paced book is at turns macabre, grotesque, cute, and silly. It is a testament to Enfu's love of drawing and prolific productivity.
"Anyone who flips through this book will enjoy watching the characters crammed into every corner of these pages come to life and energetically bounce around. You’ll want to burst into these pages and dance along with them." -- Katsuya Terada, the Doodle King
