Yumiko Adachi. Japanese Illustration

February 28, 2011

There is a sweet naïvety about the work of Japanese illustrator  Yumiko Adachi

It  captures, in an almost folk art way, situations of everyday goings on, like walking the dog, a picnic

and some bizarre ones like having the contents of your house in a tree lol. Occasionally viewed from a

an ariel perspective, it feels almost like we, the onlookers,  are almost flying ourselves.

Cats feature in the images quite a lot and there’s a strange mix of Grandma Moses and Chagall that

seems to be forming in my mind ! I don’t know much information about Yumiko but I feel her work is

well liked, judging by the number of times she has been published. Great to see a different style.

I found her work on this wonderful site full of Japanese designers and will be blogging

about more of them in the near future.
