Originally from Poland, Mateusz Urbanowicz is a concept artist, animator, illustrator and painter currently living in Tokyo.
Urbanowicz works in ink, watercolor, gouache and acrylic gouache, as well as in digital media. On his website and other online portfolios, you’ll find a selection of his professional and personal work.
I particularly enjoy his series of Tokyo Storefronts, as well as his Bicycle Boy illustrations, and his Mottainai NHK TV commercial backgrounds.
In his ink and watercolor approach, his loose, confident application of color over a foundation of solid draftsmanship gives his compositions a strong visual appeal.
There is a page on his blog about his tools, and a series of videos on YouTube, some of which are process videos for paintings, and some of which are animations. You can find prints of his illustrations on society6.
