TOM’s Foundation is pleased to host a reception for this great Gay erotic artist. Please join us in welcoming him.
Making his first ever public appearance, the legendary Japanese artist is coming to America in a series of signings and speaking events.
Most recently featured on the cover of Fantagraphics’ critically acclaimed Gay manga anthology, Massive: Gay Erotic Manga and the Men Who Make It, Jiraiya’s artwork has entertained audiences around the world since 1998, when his musclebound pinups debuted in G-men magazine. Guy Trebay at The New York Times has described Jiraiya’s figures as “jolly, hairy Asian men of refrigerator scale.”
Jiraiya will be giving visual presentations on his career and process, signing limited edition giclee prints, Japanese-language editions of his collected comics and illustration work, as well as English translations and merchandise.
