CITIx60 Art Print Project Tokyo City Map Illustration by Masako Kubo
Carefully sketched then digitally composed in a reduced and aged tone, CITIx60 Tokyo City Map exudes an aura of charm and relaxed timelessness with miniature buildings, elaborate characters and verdant pines dancing around the respected Imperial Palace at the Japanese capital’s heart. Where simplicity of style smooths the distinction between the futuristic and the traditional in this city, textures and hand-written labels add a human touch to the whimsical two-dimensional projection. Only an enhanced print can exhibit its considerable amount of tiny hidden details to the full.
Drawn to vintage aesthetics and the beauty of simplicity, Masako Kubo masters her drawing skills both manually and digitally. Having made appearance in newspaper and magazines like The Daily Telegraph, The Guardian, The Independent, and Wall Street Journal Magazine, Kubo’s art has established a style identified by a unique combination of shapes, texture and a reduced palette.
