  • very very cool. a lot of confidence in the lines; some of the colouring is almost brave in the way that it could potentially have destroyed these. very cool!`

  • damn
    this is sick.
    makes me want to go back to drawing more.

  • Jake Alexander

    Congrats Fumi!! The drawings are awesome, I like the first one the most I think, the waves are amazing!

  • Really nice style

  • sr

    awesome stuff!

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I LOVE the skulls. This work is so beautiful. The use of negative space is what gets me the most, I keep looking at it again and again.

  • Cohen

    i’ve never commented here or anything (i’ve only browsed), so i’m not sure how this to ask and sound polite, but i just wanted to let you know that i’m seriously considering getting a tattoo of the first image with the waves, and i was wondering if there was a larger image (the sides seem to be cut off of this one) that i might be able to get a jpeg of?

    my email is seniorawesomeman@yahoo.com

  • you should email Fumi directly, i dont want to post her email here publicly but you can find it easily on her website.

    cheers

    oh, i was more planning on having her contact me than publicly put her email up, because i’m far too stupid to find her website… can you link me perhaps?

  • Cohen

    Nevermind, I got it. Thanks for telling me how to get a hold of her.

  • I too was thinking this would make a nice tattoo haha
    =]

  • zo

    Beautiful,
    but uncomfortably similar to Audrey Kawasaki’s work perhaps.

  • ^weird i dont see the connection other than the Japanese names.

  • zo

    Well the composition of the pieces really,
    and details other than their facial features,
    it’s no criticism i could just see that perhaps she’s inspired by her work..or vice versa?

  • Randolf Mantooth

    I looked up that audrey person’s work hoping to see this “uncomfortable” similarity. I see no similarity at all, the audrey girl other than having a Japanese name has a completely different hyper commercial style a’la someone like Trevor Brown, this work is in a completely different universe. It speaks volumes, I can’t wait to see Fumi’s work up close with my own eyes.

  • zo

    Everyone views art differently I suppose;
    sorry if i offended you, uncomfortably was poor wording on my part,
    just making an observation and as I stated before, the work is beautiful.

  • yea i wasn’t offended it just seemed like a stretch, there are many illustrators whose work is similar to kawasaki’s, Stella Im Hultberg for instance

Musician Anna Bulbrook (The Bulls, Airborne Toxic Event, and Edward Sharpe & the Magnetic Zeros) recently launched GIRLSCHOOL, a Los Angeles-based music festival and collective that celebrates female voices. A portion of proceeds from each event go to a girl-positive organization, and this year’s festival (Jan 27-29) will support Rock n’ Roll Camp for Girls LA, a 501c3 social justice organization using loud music to nurture self-esteem and self-expression in young girls.

Society6 has joined forces with GIRLSCHOOL to pair up musicians and artists to create visuals inspired by the music, to be displayed at the event. See a few more of the collaborations below!
