Japanese influences wrapped up with bright colours create these dreamy illustrations

Natsuki Otani is a Tokyo-born illustrator working in England, and is someone I've long admired and followed. She runs her own amazing blog called Illustration Rally - but as if I needed to tell you that! I'm pretty sure you lot are well aware of Nat and her passion for illustration. Not to mention her ongoing dedication to supporting over illustrators all over the globe. Nat's style is best described in colour and realised in detailed design.

She says: "Bold vibrant colour forms the basis of a working practice that seeks to unite dreams and reality. I try to give the viewer a feast of colour and complexity, my surreal macabre touches are the counterpoint to my sweet and childlike innocent subjects." Here are some of her latest works, and you can discover more at www.natsukiotani.co.uk.
