Furuya Usamaru's path to manga was unusual. He studied sculpture and abstract three-dimensional figures in art school, and afterwards even became involved with butoh dance. For a while he worked as a high school art teacher. He made his debut as a manga artist with the ground-breaking four-panel "gag" strip Palepoli, which was serialized in the legendary avant-garde comics magazine Garo in 1994. Since then he has gone on to publish in major weekly magazines in Japan, such as Young Sunday (where Short Cuts was first serialized). In English, his work has appeared in PULP: The Manga Magazine and Secret Comics Japan.

such a great mangaka, not only his crazy art for mechanical, his ways in delivering story are very unique.

Music of marie could benefit a lot from an anime adaptation with great visuals. interesting plot twist, yet it could have been a bit longer

Little did the artistes san talent of 1950's New York know that the greatest form of expressionist art would emerge only decades after them in borderline-guro Japanese manga

Interesting mangaka, even his shounen work Picasso carries that hint of surrealism.

Kanojo wo Mamoru 51 no Houhou definitely a classic for me. I'll have to find time and check out his other works.
