Quirky Cartoon Adventure Art
Kouhei Ashino Divides His Skill Between Sketches and Photorealism

Looking at these whimsical drawings one might not associate Kouhei Ashino as an illustrator of photorealistic Japanese paintings. The Japan-based artist has an amazing talent for dividing his skills between bizarre sketching and stunningly accurate portrayals of Japanese life.

Switching between these two artistic mediums, Ashino demonstrates that he is not bound solely to one style of art. His talent is evident in that what appears to be a defining style is really part of a wide range of talent and vision.

Kouhei Ashino’s cartoon sketches are reminiscent of the adventures of Curious George. A limited color palette (yellow and orange) alongside the deliberately sporadic outline of the characters makes this series an endearing and somewhat nostalgic collection of drawings.
