comic art by Hajime Sorayama

The son of a carpenter, Hajime Sorayama graduated at the Chuo Art School in Tokyo in 1969. He applied himself to illustrations for an advertising agency. Later, in 1971, he started as a freelance illustrator. His style is realistic, and he is the master of airbrush techniques. One cannot see the difference between his work and a photograph. The themes in his work are sexy females, and sexy female robots. His work breathes a 1980s spirit nowadays, but still it has to be seen to be believed.

Since 1999, Lambiek presents the Comiclopedia as a free service to comic fans from all over the world. The database has expanded to over 12,000 biographies of international comic artists, and also has an extensive Dutch section about comics in the Netherlands.
For 15 years, the site was funded from the resources of our Amsterdam-based shop. However, the current economical circumstances make it difficult for us to maintain this service. At the moment the Comiclopedia's sole editor works for us free of charge, aided by a couple of (international) volunteers.
