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.
