The amazing Japanese artist Chiho Aoshima has an interview in the newest issue of Departures magazine. I posted about her previously (which you can read here), so I was excited to see that a major magazine had picked up on her as well. The article describes how she received her degree in economics, not art school, and how she was taught Illustrator while she was working at an advertising agency, which lead her to work underneath the amazing Takashi Murakami.
It also talks about here career and successes so far, as well her process in creating her images. Definitely worth your time.
