You can support my work by going to my KO-FI page to pay me a coffee. Or by buying my arts and books 🙂

I sell my drawings on ebay. For books, you can order them in your usual bookstore or amazon.

ABOUT ME

Ikuko IKEDA is published by NLA CreationsMK67KIWI E.L.G. and Whisperies. And sometimes, I self-publish books on BoD.

MY INSPIRATION

My works are inspired by two cultures in which I have been bathing since my youngest age: the Japanese culture of which I am a native and the European culture in which I grew up. Deeply rooted in the manga culture, I wish to promote this style while remaining faithful to the classic design.

For each work that I create, I carefully choose the emotions and precious moments that I want to put forward, but for me, art does not have to come from a deep thought. A drawing, an illustration or a moment of spontaneous beauty can be artistic.
