The work of Tomio Nitto

Tomio is an illustrator whose elegant, delicate work can be either tightly rendered or loose and spontaneous, and veers from Surrealist to observational. Often it has a mischievous edge.

His acrylic illustrations have graced everything from Saturday Night Magazine to Esquire, but his watercolour sketches are equally remarkable. The pieces below graced a show at the IndexG gallery:

Check out his website here, and his work on Behance here.

He's also written a children's book, The Red Rock, which is well worth a look. It reflects his deeply held beliefs on preservation of the environment.
