The art of Sleepy

Sleepy is a Japanese illustrator with a style heavily influenced by European folk art aesthetics, especially the northern regions. Characterised by a lack of sunlight in the winter seasons, this seasonal influence was typically carried over to childrens books via it’s emphasis on soft, desaturated colours and stories based on natural folklore. Mixed with a pseudo-anime style, Sleepy’s work is appealing to look at, executed in a watercolour style that really makes these pieces seem like they’re taken straight out of the pages of a fairy tale.
