“Unique, strange and weird”, Takaya Katsuragawa’s illustrations are full of unexpected moments
Despite having loved creative expression as a child, Takaya went on to study engineering at university. At the beginning of his academic journey, Takaya began drawing in analogue alongside his studies before slowly making the move to digital and getting hooked. It was then after winning a prize in a small competition that really pushed him to take things more seriously and “the experience made me think that I could make a living from drawing”. Now, Takaya is working as an illustrator and finishing his postgraduate studies.
