Featured Fan Art: Niwatori Kokezu


[Welcome to another installment of Featured Fan Art, the Japanator weekly spotlight that is finding it increasingly difficult to seek out artists NOT obsessed with Touhou or Vocaloids]

And one of those artists is known as Niwatori Kokezu, whose art I find rather compelling despite a comparative lack of technical merit. His pieces aren't the most detailed or brightly colored work I've featured, but contain a charm that some more accomplished artists lack. Perhaps its his thin lines or clean colors, or maybe it's just because I haven't seen a lot of art concentrating on K-ON!'s Sawako.

Either way, he's the artist of the week, and you can visit his site here.

And remember, if you know a great fan artist, or ARE a great fan artist, write to us and get on the front page!
