Cute Japan-inspired illustrations by Lisa Kogawa portray girls with giant sushi

This series of cute illustrations is the handiwork of Los Angeles-based, Lisa Kogawa. Originally from Japan, and spending most of her time now working in a sushi restaurant, the illustrator channels her surroundings into unique drawings that depict girls navigating their way through jungles of giant food.

Much of Lisa's work focuses on female subjects, however her projects present a range of illustrative styles – from bold and colourful designs, to more subtle drawings in pastel colour palettes.

Lisa has exhibited at numerous galleries in Los Angeles, and has won two awards for her illustration. Discover more at
