As a result of the profound impact which the 60’s psychedelic movement has had on illustration and graphic design for decades, the artists which appear in Minchō #8 challenge us to have a deeper artistic experience through pieces in which colours are more intense, shapes change and there is an overload of information and detail. Also highlighted in this issue is the idea of looking back in order to acknowledge the past: in this way, Jack Kirby, Miguel Calatayud and John Alcorn pass on the baton to a new generation including inspiring artists like Micah Lidberg (cover artist), Dogboy, Will Sweeney, Hideyuki Katsumata, Chad VanGaalen, Jon Fox and a selection of album cover designers.

Producto del profundo impacto que el movimiento psicodélico de los 60 marcó en la ilustración y el diseño gráfico durante décadas, los artistas incluidos en Minchō #8 nos desafían a obtener una experiencia artística más profunda mediante piezas en las que los colores ganan intensidad, las formas son cambiantes y hay un exceso de información y detalle. También se impone en este número mirar atrás con reconocimiento: así, Jack Kirby, Miguel Calatayud y John Alcorn dan el testigo a una nueva generación de estimulantes artistas como Micah Lidberg (autor de la portada), Dogboy, Will Sweeney, Hideyuki Katsumata, Chad VanGaalen, Jon Fox y una selección de diseñadores de portadas de discos.
