We’ve previously posted an illustration by Tatsuro Kikuchi, but wanted to share more charming works by him. Tatsuro Kiuchi was born in Tokyo and attended International Christian University in Tokyo – studying biology. He started his art career when he moved to the US and attended the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California; where he graduated with distinction. He started out illustrating children’s books in the US and Japan. His fun and colorful illustrations have gained a large fan base and has been commissioned to do work for the Royal Mail, Starbucks (and this), and Toyota to name a few.
