Katsuji Matsumoto

Katsuji Matsumoto was a Japanese illustrator and shōjo manga artist. Matsumoto's 16-page The Mysterious Clover is recognized as a pioneering work in the field of manga, but he is best known for his shōjo manga Kurukuru Kurumi-chan, serialized from 1938 to 1940, again from 1949 to 1954, his illustrations were popular from the 1930s through the 1950s, he contributed illustrations to numerous popular girls' novels by some of the period's most famous authors, including Yasunari Kawabata and Nobuko Yoshiya. He was a prolific illustrator of children's books and created merchandise for babies, small children, girls; the Gallery Katsuji Matsumoto in Tokyo is managed by his surviving children. Matsumoto was born in Kobe, the son of Toraji and Ishi Matsumoto, but moved with his family to Tokyo at the age of eight. At the age of 13, he began attending what was called Rikkyō Middle School. Through the introduction of a teacher at Rikkyō, Matsumoto began drawing illustrations for the magazine Shinseinen at the age of 17.

Matsumoto withdrew from Rikkyō at the age of 18 and began attending the Kawabata ga gakkō. During this time he contributed drawings to such magazines as Shōjo Shōnen sekai, it was during this period that Matsumoto was inspired by illustrator Kōji Fukiya to become an illustrator in the field of girls' media. Following the devastation of Tokyo, including its publishing industry, in the 1923 Great Kantō earthquake, Matsumoto decided to try his fortunes overseas, managed to obtain free passage to Shanghai, his hope was to make his way to Paris. In Shanghai, he earned money by contributing illustrations and articles to the Shanhai nichinichi shinbun, but when he turned twenty years of age, he was forced to return to Japan to report for the draft, he was rejected for military service. Matsumoto's first forum for steady work was the magazine Shōjo Gahō, to which he contributed from 1928 to 1938. Matsumoto first ventured into manga in Shōjo Gahō, creating a series of illustrated narratives featuring a lively Chinese girl named Poku-chan, irregularly published between November 1930 and March 1934.

The Poku-chan strips were drawn in a stylized abstract, Art Deco manner. At around this time, Matsumoto took on Toshiko Ueda as an apprentice. Matsumoto could draw in a wide range of styles, from the realistic to the near-abstract, but all of his work was distinguished by clean geometrical lines and a Modern sensibility. While he illustrated numerous dramatic girls' novels, his style was better suited to sunny, playful, or humorous work. In 1935, Matsumoto began to work for the magazine that would become his primary forum, Shōjo no tomo. Shōjo no tomo, with its modern, stylish image, was the ideal magazine for Matsumoto. In 1932, at the age of 28, Matsumoto was wed to Ayako Nimori, they went on to have seven children together. Because Ayako was an only child, the decision was made to have the firstborn male child adopted by her parents in order to carry on the Nimori name. On official records, therefore, Ki Nimori is listed as the younger brother of Ayako, therefore the brother-in-law of Matsumoto.

In 1934, Matsumoto drew a 16-page story titled Nazo no kurōbaa. Printed as an over-sized pamphlet with a sturdy cardboard cover, included as a premium in the April issue of Shōjo no tomo, The Mysterious Clover was a variation on The Scarlet Pimpernel and Zorro; the protagonist of The Mysterious Clover is a young girl who protects the poor peasants from the cruel and greedy nobles. This work is remarkable for its use of varying angles, including bird's-eye views, variation in the size of panels. Sakō Shishido, influenced by American newspaper strips, had used similar techniques in his 1930 Supiido Tarō, but in a far cruder drawing style than Matsumoto's; the Mysterious Clover had been neglected for decades by manga scholars until it was displayed at a 2006 exhibition at the Yayoi Art Museum, where it caught the eye of Fusanosuke Natsume, who wrote about it on his blog and in a newspaper column. Matsumoto's most famous work is his manga Kurukuru Kurumi-chan, serialized in Shōjo no tomo from January 1938 until December 1940.

Featuring the daily antics of a little girl named Kurumi, each episode was a self-contained story running 4 pages and 22 panels. The strip ventured far from everyday reality, was characterized by a building absurdity that descended to simple slapstick. In the earliest episodes, Kurumi-chan is four heads tall, would seem to be nine or ten years old. Over the years, Kurumi's proportions changed, until by the 1950s she had become an stylized character no more than two heads high, of unknown age; the strip was revived after the war in the magazine Shōjo under the title Kurumi-chan and ran from November 1949 to February 1954. While working on Kurukuru Kurumi-chan, Matsumoto continued to do freestanding illustrations, in both color and black and white, to illustrate girls' fiction and poetry. Matsumoto was one of the most popular and influential illustrators working in girls' media, he continued to be a popular illustrator through the early 1950s, he worked with such prominent Japanese authors and poets as Nobuko Yoshiya and Yaso Saijō, adapted many works by non-Japanese

Mille Marković

Milentije Marković, known as Mille Marković, was a Yugoslavian-born Swedish professional boxer, an owner of a sex club, a convicted criminal and gangster. He died from gunshot wounds to the head on 23 January 2014 in a suburb of Stockholm. Marković, an ethnic Serb, was born in Yugoslavia, his mother was murdered. He emigrated with his father to Sweden, where he obtained citizenship in 1982. Marković was an professional boxer. In 1977, at age 16, he won the Swedish boxing championship title in the bantamweight division, he turned professional, fighting in the welterweight division. He retired from professional boxing in 1989. After his sporting career ended, in the mid-1990s Marković ran a Stockholm sex club called "Club Privé", before ownership was transferred to former policeman Ljubomir Pilipović, to ex-ice hockey player Michael Badelt. Marković was convicted of criminal charges on several occasions. In June 1995, he was convicted and sentenced to a one-year jail term for using or attempting to use extortion and inflicting serious damage.

Marković had fitted a room in his club with hidden cameras and planned to lure celebrities there, film the victims having sex and consuming drugs, use the footage for blackmail. In 2008, Marković was convicted of serious tax and accounting fraud and drugs offences, receiving stolen goods. In late 2009, he was sentenced on two counts of drug offences. In 2011, he was convicted of fraudulently receiving social benefits on the pretext that he was sick and unemployed. In 2013, he was charged with inciting and planning a shooting on May 10 of that year after a long legal dispute with Michael Badelt; the charges of attempted murder in connection with the shooting were dropped after a witness retracted statements during the trial. Marković was named as one of the alleged sources for Thomas Sjöberg, Deanne Rauscher and Tove Meyer's controversial biography of King Carl XVI Gustaf of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf – Den motvillige monarken, published in November 2010. In May 2011, Marković claimed to be in possession of compromising photographs of the king visiting sex clubs in the 1980s.

The photograph he reproduced was proven to be a hoax, manipulated electronically from earlier images. In 2012, Beata Hansson and Deanne Rauscher published a biography titled Mille Markovic: the biography. On 23 January 2014, Marković was shot in the head four times and fatally wounded by two unknown assailants in Ulvsunda, a western suburb of Stockholm near his home. Swedish police found Marković alive in the driver's seat of his car, but his life could not be saved. Four months in May 2014, three people were arrested in connection with the murder of Marković. All three suspects were released. Hansson, Beata. Mille Markovic: biografin. Sala: Vertigo. ISBN 978-91-85000-97-5
