Sushi Ladies

Sushi Ladies illustration

What do you get when you combine a Japanese Kimono and Sushi? A Sushi girl.

I absolutely love this illustration because it merges two distinct Japanese icons together. If you search on Google for different kimono styles you will for certain see some kimonos that feature distinct backs (look like a pillow) in Japanese they are called tare (I think). Malaysian designer Chow Hon Lam aka flyingmouse365 replaces these tares with different nigiris creating a perfect image. FM365 is also the man behind the lovely National animal t-shirt design which is worth checking out.

Finished here? Then have a look at these.
