The Flying Dutchman
© Yoshitaka Amano

1000: The Flying Dutchman (Amano)

Amano's interpretation of the legendary sea captain, doomed to wander the oceans of the world for ever—a skull, an anchor, a mysterious figure within a figure, make for a dark gothic image. (This puzzle will not be easy!)

Born in Shizuoka in 1952, Amano began his artistic career early, joining an anime production company while still only 15. He is probably best known for his creation of the characters in the Final Fantasy video game series, but has worked in a wide range of artistic styles. He currently lives in New York

Note that Amano is his family name, so he is not following the Japanese artist's tradition of going by his given name.
