Ghastly Illustrations from Hi

July 06, 2014

Hi (aka Xhxix) is a Japanese illustrator based in Tokyo. "Painting" all of his images digitally on the computer, Hi creates haunting technicolor portraits of men with sullen gazes, dripping skin, and bloodshot eyes. Despite his dreamlike palette and impeccable technical ability, his images feel like excerpts from a trippy nightmare: sad, dark, and ominous.
