Serving Anime Artists
Anime art has been viewed solely for its mass production and unconventional approach, not truly valued for its artistic endeavors. This leaves anime artists few ways to garner exposure for their art. The AAM dedicates its gallery to those artists, giving them recognition for their contribution to the anime art world and highlighting anime artists who had a hand in anime art history.
