Description

Here from the retro-future to kick butt with crystals – the A E S T H E T I C Warriors! For this artbook, artists from all around Europe have come together over a shared love of magical girls and their nostalgia for the pop culture of the 80s and 90s.

Born from a tongue-in-cheek social media conversation between UK manga creators Laura Watton-Davies (‘Biomecha Comic’) and Lauren Matthews (‘Sacred?’), this book has developed into a supportive, collaborative project which has produced some amazing art to boot!

Within the book, we’ve showcased over 20 upcoming and established UK/EU artists; all of whom have contributed original and exclusive illustrations featuring badass magical girls who are ready to do battle with an assortment of crystal weapons. Drawing on the colourful background art of classic 90s anime such as Sailor Moon and the neon visuals of the art and music videos which defined the 1980s, and derivative modern movements such as retrowave, A E S T H E T I C Warriors bridges the gap between 80s and 90s nostalgia with a fresh modern twist.

Featuring a mixture of styles and both traditional and digital work, A E S T H E T I C Warriors is a celebration of indie artists, childhood memories and girl power. The book is glossy hardback, invoking memories and references harking back to our favourite 80s and 90s annuals.
