Akane Ogura’s Awesome Vintage Denim Bag

We recently met the super-talented New York-based Japanese artist-illustrator Akane Ogura, who showed us one of the awesome reclaimed vintage denim tote bags she has designed. We hear these have been selling out. Ogura also has designed lots of other cool totes, too, all hand-made by the artist. We really like the detail in the print and logo-tag designs. Great stuff.

Super Cool Illustration by Yuko Shimizu

We stumbled upon this super cool drawing by the prolific Japanese illustrator Yuko Shimizu in the B&A Journal. Shimuzu’s work has been in the New York Times, the New Yorker and Rolling Stone, among other publications, and has appeared in ad campaigns for Microsoft, Target, and Visa, as well as on a line of Gap T-Shirts. Later this year, Abrams is publishing her first children’s book.
