Three iconic pieces of Japanese pop culture unite to form this illustration by Yoji Shinkawa. You might not recognize the name, but you've seen his work. Shinkawa has served as the mechanical designer of the Metal Gear Solid series for decades, creating the namesake giant mechs. Hideaki Anno, creator of Neon Genesis: Evangelion, is the director of the most recent Godzilla movie, prompting a wave of crossover materials, which Shinkawa has put his own spin on. The best part? This design will be turned into an action figure later this year!
