Fantasy Worlds – Kahori Maki


Kahori Maki composes her beautiful pencil drawings with a computer to create a rich and dark fantasy world.

I live in my fantasy world. I draw by pencil on paper first, then scan it, then compose on a computer. I like black , green, pink, they are beautiful colours. I also like watercolour ink and pencil, because they excite me.
