In May this year, the Eshi 100 Gallery Exhibition opened in the Akihabara UDX building and ran for a brief 5 days showcasing new illustrations by some of the most recognized artists in Japan. The gallery exhibition theme was the very open-ended idea of 'Japan', allowing for amazing creativity from the artists along with many different conceptual representations. This gorgeous exhibition was collected as a book, Eshi 100 - Contemporary Japanese Illustration and sold during the event.

Putidevil's very petite Comiket 77 release is a full color illustration collection of the artist's signature softly colored, wide-eyed girls. Putidevil, probably best known from her art work on Pixiv has been appearing with increasing frequency in printed publications like Headphone Girls and 100 Masters of Bishojo Painting.
