  • Dragon Warrior

    This is an illustration used on Tokyo Otaku Mode goods. I originally drew this with a different goal in mind, but my turn was up, so I decided to use this. I draw nothing but girls for work, so I included in this my desire to once in a while draw good-looking guys.

  • Sengoku Card Illustration

    This is an illustration from Sengoku Saga, which I always am able to draw for. Each time, I am in charge of a new commander. There are four stages to the game, so the designs are difficult. But, this illustrations seems to have a good reputation, so I was in charge of her once more after this one. I thought “I can take it easy with this one!” but I had to make a new outfit…
    Well, that’s how it goes! XD

    Sengoku Card Illustration

    In the same way as the last one, this is an illustration for work. This seems to have gotten the best reaction from those overseas, so I feel like it’s given me hints as to what will make them happy. My first goal is be able to rapidly transmit this type of work to people overseas.

About Me

Ikumu Kirikawa

Illustrator  / Japan

Freelance illustrator.
I mainly make character designs for games.

I want to know more about how foreign people view Japan and what they like about it. Also, many Japanese illustrators work in very strict environments, and I am no different, so I'm searching for ways to change this even a little.

    I mainly work on illustrations for SNS games. Other than that, I also draw for magazines and the like.

    How did you get into drawing?

    From a young age I couldn't draw at all, but I started competing with my friend who was good at drawing by doing sketches. Probably my most powerful memory from that time was the feeling that something in me was awoken with a shock.

    What do you fixate on in your work?

    I am conscious of making easy to understand illustrations that aren’t too simple, but aren’t too detailed either.

    How long does your work take to complete?

    If it’s something that’s completely original, it takes a few days to a week.

    When do you come up with ideas for your work?

    I think when I am in the bath or playing. There are also many times when something comes to mind without even thinking while drawing and I insert it in. Having something come to mind while dreaming also happens often, but even when I wake up and think “What a good idea!” it’s gone before I can remember it...
