Hi, I'm a NY based Japanese illustrator.
No, I did NOT design Hello Kitty.
(& sorry but no DM please. Thank you.)
No bunny was harmed making this image. Happy Easter 🐣🐇🐰! Happy Passover! Or, just enjoy your weekend.
This original drawing for @gratefuldead
7” single collection is heading to a new home. Original drawing is always shipped with a print of the final color image. Have a nice trip down south, my friend!
This Oscar Wilde portrait for @beehivebooks
is also in @american_illustration_winners
AND, all my original drawings from the book, as well as those of @comicsdestroyer
are currently exhibited at @soi128
in NYC. Please check the show out! We are planning some event toward the closing schedule of late May. Stay tuned!
PS: as you can see, this image went through so many coloring stages. At the end, stripped everything down and settled on simple monochromatic finish.
Dusting Off the Male Gaze. This image, along with two other illustrations, were accepted into @american_illustration_winners
annual 38! Thank you judges, and thank you @chronicleofhighered
who commissioned this piece. 🙏 and more power to fellow women! 💪🌺🔥
Belated happy Record Store Day! I meant to post this on Saturday, but I was a total zombie finishing up a book deadline.
A fun comic panel style CD cover for a compilation for @warnermusic
some years ago. The CD was given away free at participating record shop.
The best part of this project was designing a perfect music nerd character, including all the props like @gradolabs
headphones and @alainmikliparis
glasses, art director Richard Jennings and I worked together on. That was FUN.
No rest till the deadline! 💀 Due on Monday! Drawing the final and 17th spread today.
I can’t thank my assistant @tatianacordobaart
enough. It would never get completed without her basically working two shift, her other job and mine. She can bring my files to about 70-75% coloring level, so I can spend more time focusing on drawing.
Happy weekend to the rest of the world. But not for me.
female scientist found a way to photograph black hole ⭐️ let me share an oldie but a goodie of spacewalk I made sometime back for @npr
calendar. As you know, I listen to @wnyc
all day everyday as I work. (And a sustaining Producers Circle member, which means, ahem, I donate more than $1,200/yr. knowledge and good journalism is power 🔥)
Spring!!! 🌸 🌺 🌹
Well, at least, it is, outside.
I’m a hermit at work right now, but at least I can open my windows and feel the spring air and sun.
