Keita Segaki is a young, Japanese illustrator based in Tokyo. Typically working in ink on paper, Segaki recreates classic paintings (like ‪The Great Wave off Kanagawa‬ by Katsushika Hokusai above) through the layering or intricate cartoon characters- some of which are random while others are culled from popular culture. From afar, the works look at though they’re degraded, almost photocopied versions of preexisting masterpieces. However, up close it’s evident that they’re comprised of hundreds if not thousands of micro-doodles which really speaks to his exhaustive, painstaking process. It’s really insane, marvelous stuff so we encourage you to get lost on his website.
