Illustration: Donguri Kyouwakoku takes us back to the future with his clean, retro style

Before we begin, let’s take a moment to briefly remind ourselves of how good the Pokemon opening credits were. Well, while we’re here we may as well watch the Sailor Moon ones as well. Ok, so we came across the work of Donguri Kyouwakoku on Haw-Lin recently and were blown away. His style is totally 1980s lunchboxes, Saturday morning cartoons and comic books. There’s even a touch of Betty and Veronica in there too. This may not be for everyone, but for me these kind of clean, youthful cartoons provide a certain level of aesthetic pleasure that no other illustration can quite match.
