A year has passed since we hosted Hot Pot Girls by Katsuya Terada. Aside from his status as the "Doodle King," he practically holds, "legendary" status in Japan. While his audience for original art grows, his constant effort into work shows. He'll pursue a part II of his Hot Pot Girls series. We'll make an assumption that he hasn't had enough of the series. 2014 also marks his 30th year in illustration.
We're hosting Terada in a series of events:
