Description

Illustrations Book "Turning Japanese"
A compilation of my illustrations from the “Turning Japanese” and “Japan in my dreams” collections.
I also added other illustrations that invoke the same spirit and some never published drawings.
Size: 20X30cm
Number of Pages: 92


“Turning Japanese” refers to Japan in a very traditional way, depicting samurais, cherry trees and dragon illustrations, wich are very detailed and include a consistent use of colours.
“Throughout the process there are more complex and simpler pieces. Some are very dense with black backgrounds where I play with shadow and light and others with minimal color (black and white and a contrasting color, red) for maximum emotional impact and to let the lines speak for themselves, almost resembling tattoos, but always with a common theme that connects them all.”
Where did the inspiration for this series of illustrations come from?
“Japan is an old passion! This collection is almost like a continuous dream, always under construction. Some pieces start with a sound, a story, a poem, a feeling … For example “Madame Butterfly” began with Puccini’s Opera (Madame Butterfly). “Yanone” with the story of Tomoe Gozen, a female samurai warrior (onna bugeisha) … “Cherry Blossom” with a poem, “Black Koi” with a simple word “Courage”… Other pieces come to mind with a well-defined visual image.”
