    Ryo Takemasa: Coffee Bike

Ryo Takemasa injects some cheerfulness into London with his illustrations

Posted by Holly Wilkins,

On a recent trip to London, Ryo Takemasa decided to draw what he encountered and in his version of the capital everyone is grinning, whether they’re buying some bread, drinking a gentlemanly pint, or queuing for a coffee (must’ve been a sunny day). Textured and vibrant with an evident ukiyo-e influence, Ryo’s illustrations are ruddy fabulous and make even the drudgery of travelling on the Tube seem fun and exciting.
