A sort of antique and refined coolness that reminds us of picture books of the Meiji period or ukiyoe of the Edo period…!
Kotake’s illustrations of mighty men depict them posing gracefully, wearing clothes and ornaments that are finely drawn and rich in details, and transports us to an era that is unlike ours. Color tones that seem to shelter ancient pigments underneath go very well with lines that make Kotake’s illustrations look alive. This combination adds a touch of peculiar charm and power to Kotake’s illustrations. Another charming point of Kotake is his ability to use his brushwork to transform anime and other copyrighted works, producing renditions that are both elegant and cute.
This time, we’re featuring Kotake’s elegant and cool illustrations. Enjoy!
