These quirky and fun illustrated comics by Yumi Sakugawa are bound to blow up in the art word soon. 

Already booming, illustrated comics are gaining popularity more and more on the art scene, and the more kitsch and eccentric they are, the more popular they become. And for a comic artist and illustrator like Sakugawa, things are looking good. With the artist’s unique techniques and different perspective, the California-based Sakugawa and her one-page comics have already been featured in The Rumpus and Wonderhowto—she was also selected as part of Best American Comics’ ‘Notable Comics’ list.

Not only are her lines perfectly executed and her work jovial and sweet, the artist makes sure her ideas or concepts are made clear in her comic art. Stats for Quirky Hand-Drawn Comics Trending: Older & Mild
