The Age of Feminine Drawing

Introducing a Japanese Influence…

My supervisor, Jacqueline Gothe suggested to me that there’s needs to be more of a Japanese feel to my illustrations (As the animals are from Uneo Zoo in Tokyo). So I’m looking at recent Japanese illustrators and their style and see if there is anything that makes it look Japanese?

I start with one of my favourite books The Age of Feminine Drawing which contains several Japanese Illustrators.

I don’t see a particularly obvious Japanese style, except maybe the large eyes for the figures. But I can’t really translate that for animals. But it’s a start and I love these Illustrations anyway! The patterns on the kimonos are quite flowery and botanical so that is something else to consider.
