illustration of a sento (Japanese hot bath) by Akira Muracco

Akira Muracco is a Japanese freelance illustrator. Born in Shizuoka prefecture, Muracco has been active as a freelance illustrator since 2014 and has developed a lovely style of cool, pastel-based colors that often incorporate geometric and even cubist elements. Perfect for keeping cool during the summer!


Muracco creates commissioned work for events and magazine columns but she also has a line of personal work that features everything from food and hot baths to dreamlike compositions. You can follow her on Instagram and Twitter and you can also purchase some of her work in the form of postcards.
