About the book:

The objective:  Colourful, cute, and sexy, while also being mindful not to be too explicit or suggestive, appealing to a wide audience.

Objective achieved! There are pages in the book dedicated to Xaxaxa's work for Ankama and the "Young Souls" game, as well as other clients projects or fan arts inspired by pop culture. You'll have the pleasure of admiring his adorable pin-ups in a manga style throughout these +200 full-colour illustrations, produced digitally.
