John Hathway manages to capture plenty of detail making each illustration a piece you can look at many times over. His work was featured at Art Fair Tokyo this past March. He works with Photoshop to put his works together using pieces from other illustrations. You can see how he puts an illustration together by viewing the Tokyo OtakuMode video below:
