Tanamachi Studio : Lettering

No Comments Creative process, designers

Do you know Dana Tanamachi? She is an amazing hand-lettering & calligraphy artist. I discovered her art last year , in the magazine of Oprah Winfrey, it was breath taking!!! It’s funny, but before that, I actually never thought about chalk being a great tool for art! (which is a bit surprising as I really enjoy looking at beautiful chalkboard menu… * useless info * ).  Do check out her website, her artwork is candy for eyes!!!!! And if like me you love, watching the artists working, visit her vimeo .

interview: Charuca

3 Comments Creative process, designers, General, illustrator, Interview

Today’s interview is with Spanish illustrator Charuca.  She’s one of the fews Europeans  that are in the Kawaii Market, market that began to be huge few years ago. Recently, Charuca become a brand and has entered in the licensing world. Be aware! The invasion of Cuties has begun! And if you don’t know what mean kawaii, Charuca is the owner of a blog magazine, which is all about kawaii and cute culture. Can’t speak Spanish? Believe you me, sometimes cuteness doesn’t need words. I love her character designs.  Her licensing brand has its own website.

What does a licensing illustrator actually do?

Actually, I don’t feel myself like a Licensing illustrator, but as an illustrator and designer. In my daily work, I do everything, creating new graphics, product designs, and some advertisement work. I take care of promoting my websites, try to stay in touch with the followers of Charuca. I love my job, but there aren’t enough hours in the day to do everything I’d like to do. picture-91
