Kensuke Suzuki started his career in the 80s as an illustrator, designing cover art and illustrations for games, tabletop RPGs and magazines such as Warlock. In parallel with his Western-influenced style –he took inspiration from artists such as Frank Frazzeta and Jeffrey Catherine Jones – he developed another style in the early 90s and signed these works under a different name: Hiroshi Kajiyama. He used both names in his early years in the video game industry (where he also worked as a graphic designer), then signed all of his works Hiroshi Kajiyama. He directed the video game company Rit’s under what (GDRI and) I assume is his real name: Kensuke Suzuki. He is mostly known in the West for his work on the Shining Force series but also worked on games such as Golden Sun as a chara-designer (the character illustrations were made by Shin Yamanouchi). He worked on a lot of adult games and illustrated many erotic mangas (one of them has been published in France earlier this year). On July 14, 2018, his son posted a message on Twitter saying that his father passed away. He was working on the manga Curse Blood as well as on a comic based on the Chinese game The Soul of Hunter.
