We gave you a brief introduction to the Art of Akira collection when we showed you a video about the loving detail put into some of the scenes from the collection's owner, Joe Peacock. Fascinating, to be sure, and our readers liked seeing it. But afterwards, we got to wondering what exactly was ticking in the head of the man who owned the largest collection of Akira cel art in the world.
Hit the jump to learn about how this amazing collection got started, where you can see it up close and personal, and make sure to check out the gallery to see tons of the cels from the actual collection.
And, if you're super nice to Joe, he might just let you see the Akira tattoo sleeve on his left arm. Maybe.
