1.What’s your story? Where are you from?

It is Hikaru Ichiko. I am from Tokyo, Japan. I graduated from the art college and now I am depicting illustration while doing a designer at the design office.

2.Tell us about your aesthetic.

A woman I draw does not show facial expressions. It makes a mystery, thereby giving the viewer room for imagination. As a result, I am thinking that I feel fragile, but intense. I frequently draw Japanese high school girls because their existence itself is transitory and powerful. Also, I feel that outlining, planar expression, and overlapping of colors like printmaking are Japanese-style expressions. But that was unconsciously doing.

3.What is your favourite medium and why?

Make an outline with Illustrator and color it with Photoshop from there. After that, I also print on screen printing. I like the expression on screen printing, the expression on which the ink is on and the coloring. I also like the process of printing one color at a time. I think that there is my character and screen print.

4.What is your artistic process like?

I am trying to express how to express it with a simple outline. However, the part where the point of view can easily go is a little complicated form. I am also thinking about composition, shape and color from the viewpoint of graphic design.

5.Who and/or what inspires your work?

I get inspiration from the boss of the design office and also from college classmates. Also, the words from the teachers who were taught during college and preparatory school days are always in my mind.

6.What role does art play in your life? How does it change the way you view the world?

To make is my life itself. I realize that I am alive by expressing it. It is also a communication tool for me, meeting people, creating conversation, depending on what I made.

7.Where did you study?

I studied various designs at the Tokyo University of the Arts for 6 years, undergraduate and graduate school. The final major is graphic design.

8.Where do you see yourself in five years?

It may be that they may be drawn illustrations individually while doing designers at the current design office, so it may not be so. I can not see the future.

At that time, I would like to become a famous designer and illustrator.

10.What do you hope to achieve with your art?

Eventually, people and animals want to make something that makes everyone happy.
I think that it may be of any form, such as art or design.

15.If you weren’t an artist, what would you be?

I can not imagine it at all. But I’d like to make a free trip such as backpacker.
