Tadahiro Uesugi

October 3, 2010

One of the finest Japanese illustrators I’ve seen for a long time must be Tadahiro Uesugi.

His work is pure style and elegance and the figures in his illustrations which are

usually female, have such flair and poise that everyone would be jealous of their taste

and decadence.  His towns and cities are beautifully drawn, and always are sunny and light,

with a great grasp for depicting nature and the seasons too, there’s some Sex in the City vibes

in their too. Hey this guy can do no wrong in my eyes, what do you think ?

More examples on his site here. It’s in Japanese but click on enter and illustration at the bottom then

just scroll and click on the images on the right. Enjoy.

    He does have buckets full of style. Great depth / layers in the bottom 2. The contrast of shade and light in the bottom left one is beautiful. I love how she gracefully strides pass the tram. He gives them all a great confidence. FAB I agree.x
