Takehiko Inoue's Mural at Kinokuniya Bookstore

NEW YORK, December 2 — Takehiko Inoue, the mangaka for Slam Dunk and Vagabond, painted a mural for the recently renovated Kinokuniya Bookstore (across from Bryant Park). The Inoue appearance was a Viz publicity event, which was closed to the public. Only press was allowed access. You can read about the event here: Takehiko Inoue Graces NYC’s All-New Kinokuniya Bookstore With Vagabond Mural.

Last Sunday, I did get the opportunity to see the fully completed Inoue mural. It was a pretty amazing Black-and-White painting from Vagabond. The details were stunning. The hands, eyes, and tsuka (translates as "sword handle") details were especially masterful.

If you are near Bryant Park, you should check out this mural.
