Observing Color Usage in Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure

Jojo6251 - 15

Hirohiko Araki is a Japanese manga writer and draftsman, or mangaka, and has been widely celebrated as being at the top of his field and a major influence on the manga medium as a whole. After observing his works, it’s not surprising that he is the only mangaka to work with Gucci and have his art displayed in the Louvre in Paris, France. He is mostly known for his over-the-top story writing and his expressivity in design and color usage. He decides to put the art first and think about consistency second, always changing the color palettes of characters’ outfits and the environment. In an interview regarding color he has stated that he puts “more emphasis on giving readers different feelings and impressions through different color combinations.” I think as a photographer or in anything, this type of approach always conveys your message much more effectively.
