Momo Takana Japanese Illustrator

June 18, 2012

Momo Takana was born in Shiga, Japan in 1983 and since then has always wanted to become an illustrator.  Nowadays with at least two books under her belt, one called simply ‘Wunsche‘ (‘Wish’ in German) and another you may well know called ‘Snow White’, it seems that her desire has come true.

With a soft quirky style that reminds me of a mix of Chagall, Max Ernst and Michael Sowa, Momo’s work is both beautiful and strange at the same time.

Many thanks to  The Art Room Plant blog for bringing Momo’s work to my attention.
