One of my favourite artists is Macoto Takahashi. He’s famous for his pretty illustrations of girls with big sparkly eyes, explosions of flowers and fairy tale settings. These are a few goodies featuring his artwork that I’ve gotten in the last few months:
A couple of postcards from kawaiishopjapan.com. These are actually from a postcard book, but KSJ sells them individually which is nice.
A vintage set of pencils with one of Macoto’s gals on the box. I think it’s from the 1970s. The pencils themselves are sadly only decorated with a flower pattern.

This joins my other Macoto book Macoto’s Princesses which is a collection of fairy tale princess-themed art. Here are a couple snapshots of the inside of the book –
