Creative Spotlight // 6 Illustrations Inspired by Haruki Murakami's Fascinating Novels


A short while ago I was featured in a Madras Press's Haruki Murakami Slow Reader Magazine along with a number of other artists and illustrators who have created artwork inspired by the novels of Haruki Murakami. Reading thought the pages of the magazine, I was iso happy to find other creatives who have been captivated by his novels, so I thought I'd share their work so more Haruki Murakami fans can discover them.

Madras Press's Haruki Murakami Slow Reader Magazine doesn't just feature illustrations, but articles about this wonderful author. If you are a Murakami fan, please go grab a copy!
