Inspiration from Japan

2010 was a great year for me. I did many large illustration projects. Unfortunately all of my projects are top secret until they come out in 2011. So I have not been able to share much of what I've been working on in my blog.

Until then, I thought it would be interesting to share some things that inspire me.

Artists are usually inspired by regional work. I love Japanese art. I don't know what they are saying in this video but I think it is hilarious. It's an episode of Kure Kure Takora (Gimme Gimme Octopus) a children’s television show that aired in Japan from 1973 to 1974. It ran for over 200 episodes. So there is plenty more where this came from. I love the funny stylizing of the animals, weird landscape, bold colors, and wacky story... whatever it is.
