About

Shuhei Fujikura

I am an illustrator and a freelance graphic designer supporting local businesses with unique creative strategy.

I am inspired by early 20th century art, illustration, ink and line drawing, vintage commercial characters, prints, pop/sub-cultures, antiques and junk-antiques. I grew up surrounded by lot of old stuff.

Also I am a registered antique dealer specializing in junk-antiques from a different era or cultures. So I have great opportunity to see and study them as valuable reference of designs.
That gives me lots of ideas and inspirations for my illustration.

Besides illustration work, I make stuff such as printmaking, woodworking, restoring and remaking things, which are all related to my artwork as well. With these experience, I work as a craft instructor from time to time, that is inspiring me too.

I work in a mixture of traditional and digital media.
On this portfolio site, I upload my artworks, concepts and WIP projects.
