Aya Takano

With a severe case of “ I will buy you this as a gift because I want it”, I gave Tokyo Space Diary by Ayo Takano to a friend as part of her chrissy present. It is basically half comic book, half catalogue of artworks. I am smitten with Ayo Takano's art. The colours, the imagery and subject matter. I adore the alien yet soft aspect of her work. She is mostly associated with Japan's Superflat movement, which is a style that really floats my boat. See more examples of her work here.
