    Let this artwork by Tatsuro Kiuchi fill you with all the warmth of summertime. Kiuchi’s work is light, beautiful, gentle, and approachable. It’s not hard to see why he met success illustrating numerous children’s books.

    Kiuchi graduated from the Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Since then, he’s illustrated for advertising campaigns, comic strips, books, and magazines. When he’s not busy illustrating, he’s living and teaching in Tokyo, Japan.

    His work is peaceful, serene, and delicate. It’s Nice That spoke artfully of Kiuchi’s work: “Stylistically his work is reminiscent of mid-century French poster art; the light palettes, grainy textures and overlaid layers combining to evoke a dreamy sense of aged advertisements for the summertime riviera or a high-class train journey.” 

    The following are some of Kiuchi’s pieces. When you’re done admiring these, stop by Tumblr to see more of Kiuchi’s work.
