Rica Takada Illustrates in a Fifties style today

December 17, 2010

Rica Takada is another talented Japanese illustrator who works in a retro style today.

Beautiful colour combinations and simple uncomplicated lines and shapes are the trade marks we

associate with this artist. Unfortunately not speaking Japanese, there seems to be little info in

English available, sometimes however, the work does speak for itself !

If you like Ricas’ work you’ll also like the work of Tadahiro Uesugi, I’ve previously blogged about.

    I’m not an illustrator or graphic artist at all, but I wondered if you knew what media this artist is using? Looks very like felt tip pen to me, but maybe there’s a more ‘grown up’ equivalent for illustrators? Came upon your blog by accident, but I’ll be looking more regularly now – enjoyable!

      Hi Martina, thanks for your comments. Always hard to tell what mediums different artists use. My guess would be a little felt tip pen, collage with tissue papers etc, and quite a few effects in either photoshop or illustrator to give that layering effect you can get with felt tips. Hope thats helpful and glad to hear I’ve gained a new reader too.
      Welcome aboard ! 🙂
