IDGR is an online-based indie graphic novel label. This label was launched in Tokyo in April 2016 and it is currently dedicated to Hiroshige.
"IDGR" is an abbreviation of "ideograffiti", a portmanteau word that shows our interest in the interplay between ideas and graphics, icons and realities, subjective and objective, universality and specificity.
We wish to provide a unique graphic novel experience and contribute to your recognition that graphic novel is an alternative form of visual art, rather than a subordinate form.
Hiroshige is creating manga / graphic novel while working as a part-time designer.
He is also interested in manga studies & perceptual studies.
His pen name was taken from Hiroshige Utagawa, a famous Japanese artist in the 19th century.
Yummi is involved in almost every step of production, from script writing to distribution.
