Inspired by the iconic layout and cover illustrations for magazines like The New Yorker and The Parisianer, two Tokyo-based designers have launched a new project called The Tokyoiter. Calling on Japan-based illustrators, the project aims at showcasing numerous visions of what makes Tokyo such a fascinating place to live and experience.
The Tokyoiter is the brainchild of Tokyo-based illustrator Andrew Joyce and art director David Robert (previously). Together, they’ve begun to invite illustrators living and working in Japan “to draw their vision of Tokyo.”
Each illustration is then laid out in what most will immediately recognize as being an tribute to The New Yorker. As of now there are only 3 imaginary issues with plans already in the works for more. It will be fun to see how different illustrators celebrate Tokyo with their art.
Update [April 26, 2016] : we checked in with the site to see what was new, only to find this lovely illustrations have been added. Great to see this initiative grow!
