Wakama Yamazaki is a Japanese illustrator based in Tokyo. Her style of illustrations and drawings are rough and different. The color, psychedelic vibes, humor and the occasional nod to Japanese heritage is greatly influenced by artworks from the 1960s and 1970s, such as the animation work of Heinz Edelman for Yellow Submarine, the psychedelic poster works drawn by Victor Moscoso and underground, independent comic titles. She tends to illustrate in this way more than the traditions of Japan and the Far East.
