A kaleidoscope of black lines and saturated colour, Japanese illustrator Takeuma’s Flickr account is a treasure trove of editorial and personal illustrations. We last featured Takeuma’s delightful poster work over a year ago, but these illustrations have a cheekier, more playful edge to them. Using simple line drawings to express his ideas, Takeuma’s images are uncomplicated and clever. The world he creates is bright but believable, with witty observations of human and animal behaviour. His skill is in giving just the right amount of detail to deliver the punchline perfectly.
