Most 23-year-olds can't say they have worked with big corporations like MTV, Nike, Motorola, Vh1 and the Cartoon Network, but Gianluca isn't like most 22-year-olds. This talented artist/illustrator from Argentina draws from Japanese anime to create his colorful creations.

Gianluca's work is something I would expect to see in the next Kanye West or Justice video, so watch out for his anime-styled art on your television and in your magazines.

Implications - The Japanese animation aesthetic has become quite popular over the last decade in North American markets due to its distinctive look and exaggerated visual style. Corporations seeking to entice youths into buying goods and services may consider using Japanese animation-inspired elements into product designs.
