Cute, and Disturbing, Illustrations

November 23rd, 2009

it’s easy to get lost in the dreamy colors of umiko’s illustrations, only to be jarred back to reality by oddly placed, warped imagery.  juxtaposition is her forte, while light, pastel hues lull us into false sense of comfort. unusual!

aoki, on the other hand, takes us by the hand in visiting strange places populated by elfin characters, where a pervading loss of innocence is mixed with a subtle wickedness. kaleidescopic colors draw you into nether-worldly surroundings – beware!
