Illustration by Natsuki Otani, Tokyo born illustrator working in England.
My hope is that my illustration can make people happy even if it is for a moment.
I have a style that is best described in colour and realised in detailed design. 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.
I am available for various projects such as: editorial, fashion illustration, product and logo design, pattern design, live drawing, portraits, storyboarding, comic, character design, poster design, advertising and murals.
Onania is an infected universe that has been accumulating character and detail since Jan Manski’s MA at Central Saint Martins in 2010. Onania’s development has been unrelentingly pervasive of Manski’s practise, appropriate to its nature as a diseased scourge.

is the most perfect and heightened existence of blissful solitude.
