P for Pizza: drawings by Kimiaki Yaegashi (aka Okimi)

Who would have thought that an illustrator from the wonderful land of sushi dedicates a series of drawings to profane pizza? But the “P is for Pizza” series speaks for itself and as well as for the artist Kimiaki Yaegashi aka Okimi. The Tokyo-based illustrator and graphic designer seems to be a huge fan of the world-famous Italian dish. And we´re a fan of his funny and still quite traditional Japanese approach to it. This is when East meets West. Probably over a slice of pizza.

About the author

Born and raised in the creative mecca Berlin, Mareike Muller worked her first professional years in advertising and design before she decided to apply for the citizenship of the world, leaving Berlin for Stockholm. Spending some years in fashionable capital of Sweden she continued her voyage via Barcelona to Buenos Aires, where she was living for almost two years, working as an artist agent spreading emerging art with her own agency The Eclectic Tomorrow. But, as stakes are high the search for the perfect place to live and work went on and brought her to vibrant Mexico City, where she´s relocating now continuing to broaden her scope, establishing her vision of spreading emerging art around the globe. When she´s not working, blogging or traveling around the world you’ll probably find her vintage clothing treasure hunting or sipping an Old Fashioned fantasizing about being a Mexican luchador’s wife and having some unicorns browsing in the backyard.
