Nicolás Castell is an illustrator based in Granada. His personal project called ‘Ukiyo-e Tale’ features the journey of a foreign artist traveling in ancient Japan. To create each illustration Nicolás used paper, pencil, ink and a Wacom Intuos. In his illustrations, he usually likes to draw narrative scenes with historic elements and also a bit of fantasy.
The traveler finds a magic pen that enables him to create anything he wants. The influence of Japan in my work is evident, I wanted to create a story placed in this marvelous country, as an homage to the aesthetics of the ukiyo-e.
