Nati's stuff

This is the place I put things I like and things I made. I'm into production design, concept art, animation and book illustration. I'm learning to draw and trying to figure out what I want to do with my life. I like sour things and love my Kindle.


Kazuo Oga (various watercolour works c.1988)

Just. Wow.

Kazuo Oga is one of the most inconspicuously famous artists, which is inspirational in its own right by how humbling it is. You would think they were digital from an immediate approach, however upon closer inspection of the textures, lighting and layering it’s clear they’re perfectly hand crafter watercolour pieces.

His works, featured in the backgrounds of various Studio Ghibli films, are subtle enough to blend into the background of the films yet stand out alone as perfection of watercolour techniques and command of lighting.

Just considering there are scenes where the camera pans across his works for several long moments reflects the sublime quality of his work. And that he was able to develop enough artworks to supply several films with stunning backdrops is nothing short of breathtaking.

That’s a good word for it, “breathtaking”.

Istvan Banyai aka ist-one is a hungarian born american illustrator. Love his cartoony style and clean lines! 

When I was around 6 I was very much in love with Sowa’s work. I think I actually believed that The Rabbit Prince exists and he’s walking around somewhere in the city in his tiny little winter coat and rabbit shoes being too fucking cute. :) He might still be strolling in Berlin, witnessing the destruction of the Berlin Wall -again. Anyway I just realised -while googling Sowa- that his paintings are the one’s coming to life on Amelie’s wall.
