Tara is a 23 year old illustrator from Tokyo with an absolutely adorable style centered around the things she loves in life and provide her with daily inspiration. Cats in all shapes and sizes, the works of Lewis Caroll and a traditional Japanese dessert called 'Taiyaki' ((鯛焼き), which literally means 'Baked Sea Bream.' The Japanese fish shaped cake is a surprising reoccurring theme in her pieces, although we're no strangers to artists who enjoy incorporating food into their work.
Tara's art is just pleasant to look at, easy on the eyes and created using pens and soft watercolor washes on textured paper to give each of her pieces a very tactile feel. Check out more of her awesome work after the break!
