Yes, you got it right, a mysterious Japanese artist uses the pseudonyms Ariduka55 and Monokubo to spread his unique creations on social media. These are illustrations that give life to a completely new fantasy world, where gigant animals live every day together with human beings.

The 24-year-old Japanese artist was inspired by the animals of Studio Ghibli, which we find in “Princess Mononoke” and “Totoro”, his favorites. Another great influence is that suffered by the work of the artist Piotr Jabłoński, as regards landscapes.

The atmosphere of the images is almost always ethereal and peaceful. Many of the illustrations are characterized by soft sunlight that filters through various objects, including leaves and windows.

The interesting thing is that the Japanese also have a word to describe the sunlight that flows through the leaves of the trees: komorebi (木漏れ日). It is a term that indicates a curtain of light and the shadow it creates on the ground, a term that effectively describes this daily beauty.

Take a look at the Tumblr of this mysterious artist.
