Fumi Koike is an illustrator & designer from Fukuoka, Japan. i was first drawn to her work because of her wonderful illustrations of food – wouldn’t it be cool to capture every plate you eat in this way? she has a great way of using colour and texture to make her beautifully simple compositions stand out. you can view her work on her blog and her flickr.

  1. Would love to own one of these illustrations! Especially the one of the apartment – kitchen table and the dog next to it.

    Love it!


  2. What I like about these images is the simplicity of the drawrigs, I love that you can see the brush strokes, it’s beautiful

  3. Love her paintings! I agree with Mihaeko. The candidness really touches you. Love the girl in the trench.

  4. Thank you for sharing. Her work is so beautiful it almost hurts. I featured some of her dogs today with a hat tip to you. (Love your blog too.)
