Hazuki Koike

Lives and works in Tokyo. Using watercolor pencils in a unique way, she expresses the theme of the moment in a poetic way, using natural scenery, plants and animals as her main motif.

Since 2009, she has been working as an illustrator, participating in many exhibitions and events, while slowly expanding her activities to include illustration work for miscellaneous goods and textiles.

In 2015, she started "sotlight" as one of the brands in POTPURRI Inc. where creators of different genres gather.

sotlight is an illustration brand that handles all aspects of planning, drawing, and designing for stationery and interior goods, with the hope of "gently" lighting up our daily lives. It is the main focus of my current activities.

Music distribution "I'm here" by Kanako Kato & Takuya Osawa

The unit of Kanako Kato and Takuya Osawa. (ex.CANNABIS)
In April 2021, they released their first soundtrack "I'm here".
Directed by Tetsuya Fujimaki and edited by Ryohei Yokomizo, this is a work that draws you in with its unique view of the world, which seems to go back and forth between the parallel worlds of the everyday and the extraordinary, using the "boxes" that appear in the lyrics as a motif.
