Tokyo Storefront Series

I’ve mentioned Tokyo-based illustrator Mateusz Urbanowicz a couple of times now (for his “Cold in Yokohama” series and a recent ramen shop illustration), and now Spoon & Tamago gives a little love as well by highlighting his wonderful “Tokyo Storefront” series. Such great work.

Ramen Restaurant

I really love this illustration by Mateusz Urbanowicz that he shared in a tweet, of a ramen shop he visited.


Cold in Yokohama


I really love “Cold in Yokohama,” a series of illustrations produced by Tokyo-based Mateusz Urbanowicz. As he explains on this page from his site (which also includes a 20-minute “making of” video), he was inspired by watching Ghibli’s From Up on Poppy Hill, wanting to recreate the Yokohama of that film, that no longer exists. Found via Tokyo Soup.
