Naoto Hattori, born in Yokohama Japan, studied graphic design in Tokyo, illustration in New York. He mostly works in airbrush and acrylic. He says, "I've been creating the imaginary world within my mind ever since I was a child. My vision is like a dream, where it's a sweet dream, a nightmare or just a bizarre dream. I try to see what's really going on in my mind and that's a practice to increase my awareness in stream-of-conscious creativity. I try not to label or think about what is supposed to be, just take it in as it is and paint whatever I see in my mind with no compromise. That way, I create my own vision."
Illustration Inspiration - this blog is just what the name implies. I love illustration, I love to illustrate, and I love illustrations (and more) that inspire. This blog is for you but also for me, so I can go back to what inspires me. I hope you enjoy the illustrations (and other inspirations) here as much as I do.
