*fuco ueda

*fuco ueda

so, i don't know who they are or...if fuco ueda is their real name, all i know is that they're from japan, they're 28 and they create the most beautiful illustrations.

i just think they're exquisite. the detail and beautiful colours just...make me so envious!
perhaps it's the little-girl-turned-not-so-innocent feel to them, combined with the beautifully drawn octopuses, seahorses and nautical schoolish uniforms.

anyway, i'm in love.

they're all pretty small...mostly about 25x35cm
most seem to be acrylic paint on cloth or wood.

I can't even put it into words how lovely these illustrations are. They're just too beautiful.
