Caricaturist Spotlight: Kosuke Miyagi – Simon Pegg and Nick Frost

Simon Pegg and Nick Frost by Kosuke Miyagi


Kosuke Miyagi is an illustrator and caricaturist from Naha, Okinawa Prefecture in Japan. He’s an who is constantly experimenting with different styles. In one piece his work has vibrant nearly fluorescent colors with bold simple shapes and in the next, there will be flowing lines and gray tones. The caricature of Simon Pegg and Nick Frost from the movie “Paul” is a great example of the latter. Not only are the faces and poses exaggerated they are distorted as well. The distortion helps lead the eyes around to discover the alien hiding in the lower corner.
