We’ve already established the excellence of Korean illustrator Kim Jung-Gi’s draftsmanship in this earlier post so I won’t wax anymore lyrical. This guy can pretty much draw anything & everything and make them look good.
This book covers his sketches up to the year 2007, and the 2nd book up to 2011.
The size and volume of the book is pretty similar to Katsuya Terada’s Rakugaking, another great book to check out. Compared to his 2011 collection there’s quite a bit more colored pieces and comic panels in this one, often finished up to a more refined/detailed level.
Kim Jung-Gi 2007 Sketch Collection Art Book details :

Amazon does not carry this book (yet) unfortunately; it can be purchased directly from the artist’s website at http://www.superani.com.
If you’re from Singapore, the book is available from Basheer as well as the Kinokuniya main store in Orchard Takashimaya. A reader has also mentioned that online order is possible through Stuart Ng books in the US.24
