Hello. I'm Arteko, an illustrator.

I usually try to create illustrations with a “calm and quiet atmosphere” with a character-centered narrative.

Illustrator/ graphic designer

I majored in graphic design at university.

After graduation, while working as a graphic designer, I joined an art event at the invitation of an acquaintance, which led me to work as an illustrator.

We mainly produce illustrations for apparel brand displays and leaflets, album jackets, and beauty related material illustrations.

Currently working as a freelancer.

[Creator Interview]

Q. What kind of activities do you usually do?

A. The main focus is illustration production. I used to work as a graphic designer, so I also create logos and invitations. Also, it may not have anything to do with painting, but since I can speak Japanese and Korean, I also work as an interpreter and translator.

Q. Please tell us about your experience and achievements so far!

A. I graduated from an art university in Tokyo and worked as a graphic designer for a company in Kyoto. As a graphic designer, I was an in-house designer, so I was responsible for all the design work required by the company. For example, company website design, in-house business card and leaflet production, product photography, image retouching, etc. While working as a designer, I started working as an illustrator while participating in art events and doing exhibition activities. I mainly work from beauty and apparel companies, such as creating illustrations for leaflets and illustrations for in-store displays.

Q. How did you start painting watercolors?

A. When I was studying painting at art college, I used watercolors for illustration assignments. I remember being a little surprised that the illustrations at that time were more popular than I expected. I was originally aware that I wasn't good at watercolors, but I gradually became interested in it, and now I'm creating illustrations that focus on watercolors.

Q. What points did you put the most effort into when planning the class?

A. Instead of suddenly drawing people or small objects, I will start with simple motifs based on the basics. I wanted to make the curriculum as much as possible so that even beginners can enjoy it. I also have time to draw various fashion accessories and clothes, so I think I can draw a wider range of stylish illustrations with stories.

Q. Please give a message to the students!

A. “Watercolor was surprisingly not that difficult!” , “I was able to grasp the rough flow until the work was completed”, “I was able to draw this far by myself!” I want to make it a class that makes me think. I think it's more important than anything else to have fun casually than to draw well. Let's start off with the feeling of “why don't you play with paint?” without bracing yourself. “You should draw pictures like this!” There is no such rule. I would be happy if I could find tips on how to have fun drawing in this class, and find a way to draw that fits my heart perfectly.
