Jun Kumaori is a Japanese illustrator based in Kyoto. Her works place a solitary character with manga-like features, in the middle of a very detailed painted scene, urban or natural, sometimes recalling a video game. Everyday’s landscape features surround the protagonist and suddenly get a fantastical feeling which makes the viewer question the reality of the background. The colorful illustrations often bear a contrasting feeling of melancholy or nostalgia.
