  I still can't believe I actually got to work on this project. I've loved Akira since I was 13, and was honored to be able to letter the 35th anniversary box set. I handled all lettering on volumes 1, 3, and 6, and did lettering fine-tuning on the other three volumes. This series didn't require as much sfx lettering as usual titles, since the idea was to keep them intact, in Japanese, with an sfx glossary in the back (which I designed.) There was some occasional sfx work to be done though, and a lot of dialog to letter. I took extra pains to make sure every bit of lettering I did on this seminal work was the best I could do and that everything flowed gracefully.

  In addition to lettering, I also did some graphic design for the series, which you can find in the Design section.
