Kimiaki Yaegashi

From human-sized pizzas to the month of July, illustrator Kimiaki Yaegashi’s curious range of subjects are bound to make you smile.

Tokyo based illustrator and graphic designer Kimiaki Yaegashi, AKA Okimi, is known for his wonderfully surreal illustrations, which include a bizarre series of pizza drawings. Yaegashi has been doodling away since childhood, and established his illustration career after graduating from Tokyo University. We particularly love his latest collection of work ‘男はJulyよ’ (‘July Men’), comically conveying experiences unique to the month of July.
