Saki Murakami

Born and raised in Japan, I've been drawing for as long as I can remember. 

 

Attending the Kyoto City University of Arts, I have been working for more than eight years professionally as a Graphic Designer while pursuing my love of art as an Artist and Illustrator.

 

Working on a variety of projects throughout the years I'm familiar with both digital design and traditional art. I enjoy working on and try to choose projects which allow me to tap into both sets of skills--advertising, book covers, CD jackets, etc.

 

My art style is 'dark & cute'. I've been creating my fantasy world for many years now. Its inhabitants have both sweet and dark sides.​ Look at my Projects for insight into what it means to be sakirhthym.
