"A" is for "Akira's Awakening." Watching Katsuhiro Otomo's anime epic was pivotal in me maintaining my path toward becoming a professional illustrator, when I was just a teenage boy. And the manga of "Akira" drove the point home, when I devoured each volume during my sophomore year of college. Even now, I regularly go back and soak up all the creative manna I can suckle from both forms of Otomo's story and its monstrous scope. Truly inspirational stuff!
