Japanese Artist Combines Real and Imaginary Worlds in Illustrations




Hazuki Koike is a Japanese artist who draws whimsical illustrations. The artist uses watercolors and pencils to draw animals, plants, and night scenes that are perfect for children's books. There is a fusion of real and imaginary worlds in the artwork. The artwork often depict a human figure hanging out with an owl, flamingos, swan, and fox in the night time. As if they have escaped the real world and have gone to a different planet where anything is possible. The background of the illustrations feature moon, and stars emitting a soft light to the artwork. Hazuki's work is done in soft hues and bring a feeling of calm.
