Featured artist:
Atsuko O'gawa

Please do not copy any of these works without .

Our next featured artist is Atsuko O'gawa.  Atsuko lives in a western region of Japan, near Osaka and Kyoto.  She is clearly a woman of many interests and talents.  Although Rembrandt, known for his quiet masterpieces of contrasting shadow and light, is Atsuko's favorite artist, her own delightful work is accomplished in black and white animae with great energy.  A regular contributor to fanzines over the years, her pieces have consistently won awards.  Atsuko has a website for Michael called 'His Majesty' (http://praed.hp.infoseek.co.jp/).

Don't forget to read our interview with Atsuko below her gallery.

Interview with Atsuko O'gawa

What is your general background?

If you're talking about art school or such a course at school, I didn't go to any. My sister was a graphic designer and went to such a school. I took American-English literature at university.

What drew you to Michael in the first place?

I guess many of you will be surprised, but the first time I saw him was a picture from 'Nightflyers' on Starlog. I still remember how I felt because it was like seeing some famous painter's masterpiece.

What quality or qualities does he convey?

In my humble personal opinion, he can convince us (of the) true feeling or character of his role to our very soul without speaking much. He doesn't play a role; he is "that" person on movie/play. I believe it's his natural talent. I also LOVE his voice. For myself, voice is so much important. I hate several actors/actresses because I cannot stand their voice.

You used him more than once: Why? Were they representing different characters?

Yes, that's why.
