Hello I'm Kell!

I’m a Japanese-Australian illustrator & animator based in Melbourne, AU. I work a lot and I love to eat sweets!

Drawing is my way of wrestling an idea, and bringing it to being in a way that is both relatable and beautiful.  

I graduated with a Bachelor of Visual Communication and Design in 2020, and have since been working as a Graphic Designer by day, and as an illustrator by night. Inspired to create stories that'll add a little more magic and wonder into this world. My work is influenced by traditional folk art, ancient myths and legends, Hayao Miyazaki films, and surrealism; notably the works of Hieronymus Bosch, Remedios Varo, Leonora Carrington.

Got a project/collaboration/licensure that needs whimsical illustrations?  Services include children’s book illustration, editorial illustration, digital and print assets, animated gifs, textiles and custom commissions. Please get in touch via email for price list.
